Improving your eye is part of being an artist, and part of that is trying to recapture what you see in a painting. Thus, the photo-study, for when it is too bloody cold/rainy/whatever to plein air paint.
I don't do enough of these, but few artists do. This one took about 90 minutes before I moved on, and my primary concern was to match the colours by eye instead of using the photoshop eyedropper tool.
