Spanish Red Onions

6"x6" Oil on gessoboard

These two were painted before they went in the pot! I found the values and color shifts tricky because they are so subtle...but I love the scraggly bits at the top!
My calendar will be ready by mid November...whew!! Cutting it fine this year!
I am going to Australia for a holiday with my family later this week so I won't be posting while I'm away.  Back in a couple of weeks!!


  1. You are a master of values and color shifts, Karen. This is the perfect example.

    How nice we can paint out props and then eat them!

    Have a safe and happy trip to Australia. Hope you'll have some photos to share!

    1. Thanks Chris! Maybe that's the appeal of painting food!!

  2. Perfection , these onions seem totally real, great colors and highlight , and I love the simplicity and purity of the set up ! Have a wonderful trip to Australia !


Thanks for sharing your thoughts and comments, I love reading them...they keep me inspired!
