a tropical storm in destin, fl

I sketched this more or less from one of my favorite photos, which a friend took during a tropical storm on the Gulf Coast. My rays are too pronounced, the proportions are all off, and the fact that the photo evokes strong emotion for me shows blatantly...but you get the idea. This exercise reminds me that 1) subtlety was never my strong point in anything; and 2) knowing when to stop -- knowing when I'm "done" -- is very, very difficult.

I just love this. Makes me want to be sitting there in the sand.
