Watercolor Wednesdays - It was a dark and stormy night

"It was a dark and stormy night" is the theme for the new Watercolor Wednesdays group. This is a great opportunity for me to work with other children's illustrators in drawing to a theme.

I've been wanting to add pieces with anthropomorphic characters, as well as show story sequences so I'm going to work on some classic fairytales pieces.

Since the theme is "a dark and stormy night" I thought I'd place Little Red Riding Hood in a dark and stormy woods. I found the stormy part a little hard to do. Any suggestions for how to achieve the look of "stormy"?

I also wanted to make Red a little hispanic girl. I'm not sure it really looks like that.... Thoughts?
