This is a little sketch, from memory, of a storm out on the ocean. I have done a few of these down in the Bahamas although from life. I looked at other artist's work, including Winslow Homer, as reference. I could probably do quite a few of these because the key is to work fast and keep it random. The title is Approaching Storm.

This little watercolor was inspired by a small painting by William DeHartburn Washington titled Marion's Camp. It's on my website - check it out. Anyway, I was out at Rabbit Point on Edisto with my family at the home of some very good friends for Thanksgiving. That evening, as they often do, they lit a big bonfire which we all gathered around. All the kids, the adults with adult beverages, a little nip in the air. Well, those images & memories all stay with me for a long time. Fire, Edisto is the result.
