Dead Shag



On one of my beach walks I found this magnificent Shag, just lying there still warm, but obviously quite dead. There were no signs of distress or damage so I assume it just died of natural causes. I brought it home and made this painting of it. I had to keep spraying the flys and by the time I had finished it was starting to smell a fair bit! It ended up being a study in black.
