Green Plate onions

Here's a favorite subject of mine, with the reference and a still of a process shot.

Adding the yellow to the folds gave it a satin finish. And the green turned out a bit different from the plate. Granted, it is a bit contrived, and I took lots of liberties with the folds to redirect you to the onion center (roots).

Hope it brightens your day.

Re: Green Plate onions

Great job Delmus, the painting (especially the red onion skin!) is sublime. My one nit-pic is that in the reference shot, the brown onion seems a little more orangey and high-chroma than yours, and it contrasts nicely with the white fabric. A minor point on an otherwise beautifully done painting.

Re: Green Plate onions

very nice,

Might i ask what colours you used. Particularly your white and the red for the red onion?

I'm having problems with using the white in the glazing without turning it to a soupy mess. (Getting there but slow process)

Great job, love the subtle changes to the cloth folds.

Sarah
