A sunny morning spent beyond the cemetery gates. Marveling at the perfection of synthetic imitation against a backdrop of hewn stone split by shifting earth and hungry tree roots. Later the clouds split with lightening, a torrent consumed the streets sending icy water down my spine and up my legs. Good day to be carrying a camera apparently.

I completed this drawing some time ago but have had to refrain from posting it till it was in the hands of its new owner. A departure from my usual style a more overt drama was necessary for the subject. Drawing from a painting rather than a photo also transformed my own style and approach to mark making. A little practice at expanding capabilities.

Drawn from A Ship in Need in a Raging Storm by dutch artist Willem van de Velde.
