Well I’ve finally had some success in a still life painting after several paintings that I didn’t like. My two onions painting went well right from the start.
It helped that I looked online for inspiration of composition and I was inspired to raise the onions up so that they were closer to a straight on view. I’ve seen this kind of still life composition being used a lot lately and it works well for this painting.
It also really helped that I worked on the two onions painting for over two hours tonight. For a small 5×7 painting that is quite a long time, but it was worth it.
Side note, I’m glad this painting was successful because this was my 1000th work since starting my journey over three years ago.
