Onions - Red and Yellow

Fractured Onions, Acrylic on Paper, 6.5"x6.5", $100
Both of these paintings were made using a palette knife. The subjects were even the very same onions.  By using the fracturing technique (see Julie Ford Oliver's blog), the texture of the paint and the edges on the painted objects came out a lot different from the Alliums painting below.  The substrate also made a considerable difference - the gessoed watercolor paper that I used for Fractured Onions has a lot more tooth (texture) than the gessoboard which is really quite smooth and slippery.
