This should look familiar to you. It's the same onion I painted a couple of days ago. The first one was painted using pastels and this one is done in oils. It's really hard to get a good representation of the painting with the dark colors used. The green background is not this light. There is a strong reflection because the paint is wet.
I painted this on a panel that I had gessoed using black gesso. That made it really easy to get the rich looking background. I think painting the same subject a couple of days apart kills the spontaneity of the second painting, even though I used different mediums. I think my heart just wasn't into this one as much.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
