fly having picnic in spider web with big spider
This is perhaps a slightly frightening illustration to youngsters and is quite dark in its tone. The fly is having a little, sweet picnic on a spiders web. The large spider has appeared on the web and it is up to the imagination of the viewer what happens next. Does the fly get eaten or does the spider join in the picnic? I have gone for a very flat on, unrealistic perspective here, basically for styling and clarity in the image. I particularly enjoyed painting the food! The background was painted out of focus as if seen through a camera. The painting is created in photoshop to a size of 10" x 8". Painted in 2008.
