First thing to say is that I used a model from Blendswap by Boris Marjanic for this picture. The sky and ocean and lighting etc are mine as is the composition ( which could be improved I think as the boat is stuck to the right too much).
I was trying to get a moody, storm sky with light breaking through and sparkling on the water, Ive given the sail some translucency.
I would be interested on anyones thoughts on what I should do to improve this. There are a few previous incarnations of this on page 5 of my sketchbook.
