Two Onions SOLD(Click here to view eBay results)

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.

I love that dark background. It gives this a real "old masters" feel. Also, yhanks again for including such beautiful large images. I love to click on the big one to get a better idea of what's going on.

I love the colors in this one. The subtle colors in the background really make the burgundy and lighter colors really stand out. The detail is amazing!
