Thunderstorms are thoroughly fascinating, the climax being of course the lightning strikes. I have not yet mastered painting lightning bolts… realistically, but i am gradually getting there. Usually I have to rely on photos, on account of the brief nature of a lightning strike. With an iPad, I know you can hold down the camera button for several seconds, and hope to catch one during that burst, but hey–I am sure Pixabay has a ton of free creative commons photos on all kinds of thunderstorms.
