Today I wanted to paint the big moon over the Continental Divide. I love the difference between the painting and the photo. When I took the photo the sun was just coming up so the upper part of the sky was pinkish. By the time I put the sky in the sun was a little higher and made the pink move down and the blue go up. It's a little reminder to me of how fast a scene changes as I paint.
