After weeks of almost no rain and storms which always seemed to veer away or dissipate, we finally had a satisfying cloudburst and shower in this urban corner of Northern Virginia. I was thrilled to see dark clouds roll in and deliver. There wasn't much lightning or thunder, except for one quite loud blast. I used my work break to depict the turbulent skies over the foliage in an impressionistic iPad sketch. It is only a minor attempt as I have yet to get the iPad to give me the image precision I want. Since other artists have done it I know that I can, but perhaps 25 minutes a day is not enough practice time.
