Sketching Shakespeare: The Tempest Act One Scene 2 - End of the Play

Well, here you go, the rest of the Tempest. I like it. The only explanation I feel I need to make is the final painting. I started the Tempest with a painting and felt like I should end it that way. It's meant to convey the sense of completion and calm that comes at the end of the play as opposed to the raging storm of the beginning.

Act 1 Scene 2
Why speaks my father so ungently? This
Is the third man that e'er I saw, the first
That e'er I sigh'd for: pity move my father
To be inclined my way!

Act 2 Scene 1
You cram these words into mine ears against
The stomach of my sense.

Act 2 Scene 3
Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows

Act 3 Scene 1
O heaven, O earth, bear witness to this sound
And crown what I profess with kind event
If I speak true! if hollowly, invert
What best is boded me to mischief! I
Beyond all limit of what else i' the world
Do love, prize, honour you.

Act 3 Scene 2
Monster, I will kill this man.

Act 3 Scene 3
You are three men of sin...
Being unfit to live I have made you mad

Act 4 Scene 1
Let me live here ever;
So rare a wonder'd father and a wife
Makes this place Paradise.

Act 5 Scene 1
I'll deliver all;
And promise you calm seas, auspicious gales
And sail so expeditious that shall catch
Your royal fleet far off.
