We start this part by painting the sumac stock the bird is resting on. As the chapter moves on we build up the right sumac leaf in the background.
In this part we detail the sumac leaves in the background at the bottom of the painting.
We continue to detail the bottom/background sumac leaves and then add the water droplets to them.
Using the same 'reduced hue' techniques learned painting the bottom sumac we now paint the top background sumac leaves.
