Re: Onions

It would be helpful if you had a reference pic, but yellow onions are more or less a greyed orange color, often with a hue shift to yellow and higher chroma in highlights. The image uploader isn't working right now, so:

Color is the most important element in painting - except for everything else

Re: Onions

Are you working with oil paint and glazes? That's how I would paint onions, so that's all I know about. I would probably use some Cad Orange and White and maybe yellow ochre as a base, and then glaze with burnt sienna or even Cobalt blue or a purple. Onions have so many colors on them. They are fun to paint - good luck!
