Dead Fly 86 - Self Portrait
watercolor on canvas 14"x 14"
Unplanned subject, but I felt like doing a Dead Fly using just the black watercolor pencil. It started out as just a nice study of a Dead Fly in the middle of the canvas, then I added some water, then just let going. I had an original idea of doing one of those lovely little black and white studies of the subject but as I worked I started to see a face in the lines and shadows. Then I thought, Hm, that kind of looks likes me. So emphasized that area. Then saw another one, and another one, and another one... How many do you see?
As remarked on FB, I quit at ten, one of which seems to be a parrot, and a couple of which do have some resemblance to the artist. Once you start seeing faces....ReplyDelete
