Painting from another painting

I've had the good fortune to paint several times from the Women's Forum State Park in Corbett. I painted this today using another smaller painting that I did last summer for reference.
Painting: Celeste Bergin, The Gorge, oil on 12x12 canvas panel

Hi Celeste--Really nice light! Wm

Dreamy. No, reality. Wow! You are really doing some cool art, I just gotta say!

A great spot to paint the Gorge. Looks relaxed and reflective -- maybe the result of painting from a painting reference? It holds together beautifully. Well done!

It is a great place to be and a great place from which to paint. I wish I could open a jar right now and smell last summer's painting adventure up there..

Another gorgeous Bergin piece here, Celeste. I love the sense of early morning light, beautiful colors...Is the Columbia River Gorge?

I would like to know how you made this work in a square format. Every time I have tried to do anything like this in a square it does not work. You make it seem like the square was how it was meant to be. Impressive!

forgot to ask, is this predominately warm? that is another mistake I make. If this were my scene, I'd paint it in mostly cool colors, and that is why you're here and I'm not. My Gorge paintings are all in the FAIL pile. !

I really like the dark foreground in this--beautiful.

I remember your post from last summer. The slide show took us right there with you for the workshop. You showed a nice progression of paintings then, but the light you've captured here is better, I think. Like the image has been simmering over your long wet winter.

Isn't this lovely...! Would look great at 48" square, too.
