Dead Fly 22 - Quick and Easy!

Dead Fly 22 - Quick and Easy!
Oil on canvas board 5"x 7"

     After struggling with the "Rembrandt" dead fly (#21) for way longer than I should have - seriously - I should have just tossed that one out the window - I wanted to see what would happen if I took the left over paint that was on the pallet and just knocked one off lickity-split without putting too much thought into it. Also, wanted to just work wet on wet, no layers, no glazes. This is one of my personal favorites. It's nicely colored, didn't go muddy, spontaneous, well-formed, and has rhythm to the composition. Took ten minutes. Sigh. Oh, well, the more dead flies I do, the easier they'll get to do.
