Onions

Coloured pencil  ( 16x13 cms)

My entry for this month's Monthly Sketch Project . 

I love the colours in these onions, you can really have fun with the reds and purples.  I'm still experimenting with different types of paper and this time I tried (smooth) Fabriano 4.   I was quite impressed and will use it again.  The beautiful photo reference of the onions was provided by Gillian Mowbray.

I love the grainy texture to this study, it looks like it is behind vellum and softens the whole look. Those colours are so bright and crisp, I think the smooth paper produces a nice effect with for the pencils. I also like how you have cut the image and left the garlic. Wish I had thought of that.
