The Colour of Onions























Even onions are beautiful, if you look closely you can see so many colours.  When I buy onions I always ask for a mixed bag just so I can admire them....well they do have different tastes too, the red ones are best in salads etc.
I got a bit confused with my shadows on these, there was a power cut while I was painting and my light sources changed, so I tried to fix it with a bit of coloured pencil!

Wow - this is absolutely amazing! I'm in awe at how you captured all of the color variations. Looks like something I'd find in the produce section at the market or Farmer's Market. :-)

I wouldn't have noticed about the shadows--but I hate that when the light changes in the midst of something. The onions are beautiful.

I'm fond of the center onions counter top reflection. I remember eating onions like apples just to watch my friends grimace.

you've brought out the natural beauty of onions :) I usually just eat them but now I'd look at them before cooking them and eating them ^^

The onions really steal the show from any shadows with their beautiful color. I love onions but my family hates them. I can sure enjoy the picture without upsetting anyone, lol.
