Congratulations on keeping the moonlight cool. It's a pet peeve of mine, but I can't stand these nighttime paintings that look like a sunset.

How did you paint this? Allowing your retinas to adjust from a headlamp spotlight on the linen to the subtle tones of the nightfall landscape would take serious time, wouldn't it?

Great job!

For these types of paintings where the light is limited I get the composition and a few strokes of color down quickly using the light of from the car. Then I take a good photo and finish it up back at the studio.
