Here's a couple of onions that are amazingingly hard to paint. I've seen other artist do them quickly, and some do them in a more rendered fashion like these, and gotta say, I can really appreciate the more direct approach. The color has to be so dark and rich on the red onion, and the subtle tones on the white onion are various greys of pink yellow and green. They took alot longer than I planned. And what's even more surprising to me is that some of the simplist objects have a ton of information in them where you only need one object instaed of two to make a good painting.
