Photo Reference Rainbow Hill

In response to yesterday's post, I have received requests to see the reference photo. This is a photo we used in my July Studio Landscape Workshop and it is not an easy scene to paint. How much detail? Where is the focus? How does the viewer travel within this painting? All the colors of the rainbow - what to include, what to leave out, how far to push a color?

Yesterday I posted it as 7x5 inches but when I removed it from the backing board on my easel I realized it was not that size.
