Bower birds sketch for next painting

Snowed in today, working on next painting. Have been reading about the very interesting bower bird.....the male makes a nest on the ground and surrounds it with brightly colored objects, many blue in color to attract a female.......so here is my sketch, getting ready to transfer it on to the canvas and paint.

It will be interesting to see how this translates into a painting..... within the creative process the painting usually takes on a life of it's own, and winds up looking nothing like the sketch.

It's the same with writing. You just have to get that first sentence down to get going.
