Just once in a very blue moon

I came across this beautiful picture on the National Geographic website. Always an inspiration! I think I could paint that. Mask the moon first, then paint a blue sky with a simple wash. Water reflections wet into wet. Then paint the trees with a dark mix of ultramarine, or indigo, and sepia. Remove the masking fluid and paint the moon a gorgeous orange-yellow. Sounds simple enough. Let's see if I can pull that off!
