No other part is brighter than this part.

I started another painting from Glacier NP. This time it's a woodpecker that I took some pictures there. Again, birds are difficult to paint based on my a few attempts in the past. First, I want to get the shape perfectly right. So unusually started digging in to the main shape at the beginning. I'll worry about the colors later.

I'll put the front trees in next on the left bottom corner. Then consider value range, front to mid, mid to back, back to sky&clouds.

At this moment I'm completely ignoring the trees in the foreground. Once I correctly defined those bigger mountain shapes, I'll put something(s) in foreground before getting into the details of the mountains and clouds.

Again contrast between lit area and cloud shadowed area is the key of this painting.
