Onions and Peppers
I thought I'd go away from the vertical compositions I usually work with and work with a horizontal arrangement. The view is from a lower perspective and everything is arranged side by side.
I like drawing red onions. They have a small, rounded shape and they're easy to draw. It's a lot more challenging to render and paint them because of the subtle value and color changes along the shape. And it's tempting to draw the lines in the onion skin too dark.
I'll be doing more oil painting from now on, mostly to get more familiar with it. I've been checking out a few daily painting sites and I'm really inspired to give a try. I just hope I have the discipline to stick with it.
Feel free to comment.
