Onion Study

Now that the weather has turned windy, wet and cold I decided to do a study of what ever I could find interesting in my kitchen. I tried to keep my brushstrokes loose and still capture the feel of an onion. I found onions are not easy to paint but I will be looking forward to trying another. I used a limited palette of Cadmium Yellow Light, Alizarin Crimson, and Ultramarine Blue with a touch a Viridian plus Titanium White.
