I originally posted this in the landscape forum, but thought I'd repost over here with the reference. Studio piece is 20x24, reference piece is 8x10. Oils. I also took a photo of the view when I was there painting the little one. The photo was useful for remembering details, but the painting helped me remember the colors better. The photo had dull colors. In person, the colors were totally mesmerizing and changing quick as the sun was rising.
