Big Purple Onion

Big Purple Onion

My daughter came over yesterday and we each painted a version of this still life (comprised of stuff from the pantry and ‘fridge, arranged in one of my pottery bowls ) using Prismacolor colored pencils.

I didn’t get to scan hers before she left, but here’s mine. It’s on 9 x 12 Strathmore bristol vellum. I didn’t like the background as it was, so I melted it with some turpenoid, which I think has helped at least a little bit.
