Onion Study 2

Size: 29cm (w) x 28cm (h). Watercolour, acrylic inks and paper collage.

I enjoyed painting the first study so much that I decided to do another one before I used the onions in my quiche. This time, I tried (really tried) to hold back on using too many colours and make the most of the onions by describing them in as much line as possible. I don't need much encouragement to use my dipping pen and no2 sable liner. The painting evolved (which is always exciting) into a design using paper as well as paint. I was drawn to the colours and fine lines of the map and felt that they would enhance the overall look.
