This is a 9" x12" panel painted from the reference of a 8" x 10" plein air.
It is a view at the International Yachting Restoration School in Newport, RI

and the plein air..

I like these both. A lot. I have some leanings towards the original painting. I can see that the hull lines are a little cleaner in the studio, and that you've simplified the yard area. However, the green building is a little distracting to me. I think because it is recognizable as an object and it brightly lit. In the plein air, there are also bright objects in the same area, but they are "noisy" and none demand attention on their own.

I love how you simplified it.
