I worked on an oil painting portrait all afternoon and evening with frustrating results. So I decided to do a quick watercolor sketch to comfort myself. I actually ended up doing this onion twice. The first version was yucky and overworked so I gave myself a few minutes more for one more try. Now I’m off for some bedtime reading about portraiture in oils and some sleep.

  4. Love this, it’s so bright and colorful! You’ve had me thinking about watercolor vs oils since your comment yesterday. Made me take a closer look at how I use watercolors (not that I’m using them much at all at the moment) info to have when I need it.

  5. I love how you’ve given this onion color ..bright, bold, juicy. Some times the best work comes after we have some issues with another painting. Lovely.

  6. Oh what brilliant colors – just wonderful! Thanks for your nice comment! I wanted to ask you for some more advice about painting at a larger scale, specifically what brushes and papers do you recommend for this?
