Moon just before sunrise - Study

I was working early in my studio and happened to step outside and was taken by the beautiful colors right before sunrise.  I think this banding of colors is called twilight, a refraction of light just before the sun breaks over the edge of the earth.   I went out the next day and set up early.  I had to use a head lamp because it was too dark to see my palette.  I started to paint before it got too light because it happens so quickly.  This is that early morning study.
