The Phoenix Rises 2

I'm still working in black and white, trying to get the composition where I want it to be as well as the details before I start adding color. 

Here I am starting to paint with white to pick out the highlights and define the shape more.

Continuing to define the feathers in the wing and body.

Continuing to define the feathers and then going back with black to refine the shapes even more.
Now I need to figure out what I will do with color for the background. I don't think complementary color will work well so I will probably go with a dark analogous color instead. This is where Photoshop can help as I can try several colors before I paint to see what I like best.
