Raw Onion

Something raw for EDM.  I always enjoy drawing red onions, all my favourite colours are there.
These are actually better raw than cooked and delicious in salads, fortunately these onions don't smell as strong as white onions otherwise I would have been crying!
Coloured pencil over watercolour.

Oooooh...I could stare at this all day. I almost did a red onion, but it wouldn't have been nearly this lovely.

Hello Cathy,

What a wonderful, wonderful (so good I said it twice) painting/drawing.
Simply beautiful.

You certainly know your onions!

Do please come visit my blog again sometime - I'll get the cake out (and a glass of port but shussh...don't tell anyone).

Great onions Cathy, love the sheen on the skin!

Well done - such a neat, balanced drawing. Your work is one of those that make me want to really get to work and learn more technique, because it's always so neat and you make it look simple! One day I'll stop thinking about it and do it for good!

Ann said...

Beautifully rendered and gorgeous color!

Sara Light Waller said...

Oh! Beautiful Cathy! :-)

There's a coincidence! I have never grown onions before and yesterday, bought a bag of red onion 'sets' for my first attempt.
I love your sketch - the perspective on the onion on the right is not one I have seen before and I think it is great. Nice texture too - again, a bit different to the usual onion paintings! Good to see a new take on the subject.
