The picture on the left is a photograph a friend of mine took one evening this spring while watching a storm brewing as she looked out her back door. When I saw this posted on facebook, I asked her if I could have a copy of the photograph so that I could draw it. She said she would be honored.
I am very thrilled with how it turned out. I love the shadows in the clouds and the background landscape. I also think that the framing of the trees in the forefront make a very dramatic statement, which just makes the entire picture.
This drawing will be added to my Etsy site in the fall. I will have some Giclee prints made beforehand, since I never sell my originals. Selling my originals would be too much like selling my children, and I just couldn't do it. But, it will be on my Etsy site in the fall, so that is something to look forward to.
