Yellow Onions

Yellow Onions, Acrylic on Paper, 5"x7", $75
This painting is one of a series of onion paintings I did this winter.  I used onions as a readily available subject to experiment with a variety of color and paint application techniques that yielded a wonderful range of results. 

On this painting, I started out with a blue cloth under the onions (that was what was there), but as I painted, I realized that it really wasn't working. I changed the ground to green to see what that would do - it was exactly the effect I was looking for.
