This is the first time I have painted from life in a while. My nose has been close to my computer monitor painting animals and such. It was nice today to back away from my easel and try to remember the basics to a good painting. These onions had been waiting for me in my studio for a long time. They were developing some nice, rotten, ochre color. This is painted on an 8 x 10" linen canvas.
