|8x16 Oil on Linen|
I am learning to enjoy doing Still Life paintings more and more. Now when I visit the grocery store I even shop a little differently.....shapes,colors, size....so much for sticking to the grocery list! When I bought these white onions I was thinking I wanted to paint them as just a tonal...black & white but after I began I couldn't hold back on the color. I kept looking at the pinks and greens in the white onions. I used a black cloth on the bottom but it seemed too cold so I used my artistic license as usual and made it up as I went along. One of these days I will paint exactly what is in front of me, not so much as that is my goal, but I do want to be ABLE to if I ever wanted to.
