“The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.”

Puerto Rico – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor Pencil and Gouache on Black Art Spectrum Colourfix
This was really fun! I drew the whole thing with watercolor pencils, then came back in with gouache to finish it. I cropped this from an image by Tonyjazz at WetCanvas.
The masa paper I ordered came in yesterday. I can’t wait to play with it!
About Amelia Earhart
Amelia Earhart, who was born in 1897 in Kansas, became the first person to fly solo across the Pacific Ocean and gained renown as a woman in a field dominated by men. Earhart worked as a nurse’s aide during World War I and learned to fly after moving to Los Angeles in 1919. She first became famous as one of a crew of three to fly across the Atlantic in 1928, but her best-known flight was her last. As she was attempting to fly around the world in 1937, her plane disappeared over the Pacific Ocean and was never found.
