It seems like I've been working so much from photos in the past few months that this challenge has been great for me to get back into painting still lifes. Although the rings on the onion were getting me a little dizzy trying to keep them separate, I'm very happy with the way the whole onion came out. I added the background colors with a palette knife letting a little bit of the underpainting to poke through.
I'm glad that my studio was warm enough today to paint in. The past few days it's been so cold I brought all my paints upstairs and painted at the dining room table near the fireplace.
Dean's working on his blog post … so stay tuned… I'll add the link in later when he finishes his part.
