Painting for the birds - Winter in Maine

The birds outside must be having a horrible time this winter.  This morning was 2 degrees and everything covered with ice and snow. I have birds on my easel too... and they are much warmer.

Bird painting ideas
I have 6 of these square panels so I sketched out several compositions for  some bird paintings.

This is how I start. Just  dry brush the idea onto the canvas  to see if it works.
Bird sketches  in progress

I'll probably go ahead and sketch out the other four and work on all six at one time.
