Red Onion

5.5x5.5 watercolor in Arteza wc sketchbook 110 lb cold press paper done last weekend. The red or purple onion is one I had out on the kitchen counter to slice for broccoli cashew salad, and it made a nice quick still life. Comments welcome!
Beautiful to look at, especially that subtle bit of lavender. Gorgeous!

I find watercolor way beyond my skill set, and really enjoy seeing simple beauties like this that make it look so easy.
Firstly, great to see you around here Kay.
Secondly, this is great. Just about on a par with an Emil Nolde watercolor piece!
Beautiful light via the warm light from behind and the cooler violet form shadow of the onion. High chroma throughout works.
