March 17 - ONIONS!!
"ONIONS!!" How fun to have a plate of red and yellow onions... the plate was trasluscent green glass, on a redish cloth. This was a setup that my students used on Tuesday, and I painted it (different cloth color) for today's painting. This is an oil, also only 5 x 7 inches. I like the fact that the plate tips a bit, giving some subtle tension to the image. And of course the oils make such a rich feel to the surfaces.
Do you recognize that yellow Spanish onion? Yes, I still haven't used it in a winter stew yet. I painted it in acrylics on February 10! $100
