Onion studies...



Ik had moeite met het vinden van de juiste kleur voor uien. Ik heb verschillende kleurenpaletten uitgeprobeerd, maar ben toch niet helemaal tevreden. Op de een of andere manier bevalt gebrande sienna mij niet zo erg.
Hoe dan ook, hier zijn een paar van mijn probeersels. 

I struggled finding the right colour for onions. I tried several colour palettes, but I am not really happy. For some reason the colour burnt sienna doesn't seem right.
Anyway, here are some of my experiments.

You found just the right color for onions' these look just like the ones in my bin EXCEPT where's the long green leaves sprouting from them? --I guess I need to make onion soup. Elephant garlic bulbs are a color challenge too. They are whitish. Haven't seen any in the market lately though; too snowy, too frigid to go!

It seems that you found the right combination of colors - I can see quite a few there, masterfully combined. Very nice results. The one with the pealed skin seems challenging, but you managed to capture the brittle, papery texture. I love the five onions too!

Nice work Judy! A simple subject well rendered and looking good enough to eat.

These are all lovely Judy.

Judy said...

Thanks everyone! Linda, these onions did not have a green end, just a dry brown shriveled end.

Great onions....I love how you painted them. What did you do with them afterwards? :)

Irina Rekhviashvili said...

The last photo is the winner for me, with colors and softness of watercolor and composition and overall pleasantness one feels when looking at these onions.
So interesting to see your work.
