Onions I - Final

I finally finished this version of the onions. I like the richness of the colors in this one but will go for the gusto in the next version, one where I will paint directly onto the paper in one go for each color, letting the colors mix on the paper and do no underpainting. I will be looking for which effect I prefer. I love onions!

Well, this is just perfect, the colours are still fresh and rich and it is impossible to spot that a sepia underpainting was used.

Looking forward to the next one!

Thanks, Kari! I hope to be able to start the second one tomorrow, no guarantees, though! So far, so good on these.

I really like this painting as it is - such a nice looseness to it even with the underpainting.

I'll be looking forward to the second version as that is more my painting style and the comparison will be facinating.
