Yesterday morning, the moon was still up at 7:30 AM. The sky was lightening a bit and the trees were blackened against the light of the moon. Once the moon begins to set, it happens fairly quickly that it dips down over the hill and I can no longer see it.
This painting is my take on moonset and early morning. I can't seem to get the blue correct in this - the blue is really more a warm, French Ultramarine Blue...but it's close.
