Fire, Wind, Rain: and Photography Exposures

I’ve been upset about the first, then they were topped by worry for friends in Texas and Florida…  Painting images loosely from photos that stayed in my mind helped.

In these, more than most, I noticed the exposure (flash or not, and lighting)
changed the feeling of a sketch… do you see that or is it me?

I was trying for loose… feel like I did that in the hurricane sketch.

I think the lalaland fire sketch muddied up, but M tells me he think it fits the subject.
What do you think?

    You captured the palm trees in FL perfectly, Kate. All gone for now (the weather, not the palm trees).

    I think they’re all spectacular and the fire one works well specifically because you got muddy. Sometimes that’s just what it needs to scream FIRE!

    Katie, I think I would prefer if you didn’t have to draw such images, but I do like the last one. I can hardly believe what is happening with hurricanes, fire and rain. So many people affected!


I love hearing from visitors!
