Onion Pot

Acrylic on Canvas Panel - 8 x 8 inches  SOLD
I'm a big fan of Carol Marine's and whenever she returns to painting onions it gets me to rethinking my process. Onions are tough, but she always does such a great job.
The last batch she did, she mentioned painting them in using one basic mix for the middle value, and then sculpting the roundness from there. So, that's what I tried to do.
This one looked really awful until the final moments when it all came together.

The onions are really nice and so is the teapot. Your color palette is lovely. Beautifully done!
