I looked away from Mt. Shuksan and looked toward Mt. Baker's direction (SW) and painted Table Mountain.
Since my onsite paintings tend to be darker, I kept thinking making shadows lighter, which worked for the mountain, but made a mistake and lost value contrast in mid-foreground, which I needed to make shadow much darker.
The bright side was the cloud in the background is almost exactly what I wanted it to be.

When I look back how I got here, the key was the values of the main subject far back. I think that part dectated the entire value coordination of this painting.

Also, while I was hiking around yesterday I decided finishing this piece in this month.
