"Red Onions"


Yet another DPW Challenge entry. I really struggled to get the bright red/purple color I was seeing. I finally just accepted that maybe there are limits to what oil paint can do. Or maybe limits to what I can do! Either way I still had fun.

You did a beautiful job with this. Loving the warm red/oranges against the cool reds.

Looks great! And fresh. And not overworked. A success. I have to do the challenge again—I'm determined to "get it"! I love your color sense.

Wonderful colors and great brush strokes.

The colors really make the edges turn. You got the onions to have a round effect and not look flat at all.
