Salgueiro Maia #sixfanarts challenge

Sped up process of a watercolor I did for the #6fanarts #sixfanarts challenge. Salgueiro Maia, a key player and a Carnation Revolution hero for many, led a mechanised cavalry column into Lisboa, aimed at taking key targets and capturing the government members. His role in the negotiations was critical for the peaceful outcome of the Revolution. This #sixfanarts challenge was very timely suggested by @bernar_usk on Facebook.

Processo acelerado de um desenho em aguarela que fiz para o desafio #6fanarts #sixfanarts. Salgueiro Maia, um elemento chave na Revolução de Abril, liderou uma coluna de blindados até Lisboa, encarregue de tomar locais-alvo e capturar os membros do governo. O seu papel nas negociações foi crítico para o resultado pacífico da revolução. Este desafio #sixfanarts foi sugerido em boa hora por @bernar_usk no Facebook.

I was born on the southwestern-most tip of Europe, in Lagos, Portugal. A childhood of legos and sandcastles led me to architecture school, but an adolescence of doodling drove me to sketching and later to illustration. I like to sketch, to travel and to chop vegetables into tiny manageable bits. I also like maps. The older the better!
