Challenge 27, Onion

I am proud to say that I have become a member at RookiePainter today and this is my entry for challenge 27.  This is the photo we were to paint from:

And this is my onion painting:

I would have continued to paint until I thought it done, like putting in higher highlights, darker darks-change up the values... but there is a scratch that is coming thru to the front.  I think it may be a scratch in the latex sealer on the masonite that I didn't see until I put the oils over the top of it.  Perhaps a thicker coat of paint would have gotten rid of it?  Dunno. 
Too bad, I was liking it.  Oh well, I'll just start another one.  :)


  1. Ths softness of colors in this onion is so nice. I love the lights and darks in the background also.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
