EDM #179 Onion

What a fun challenge, there are so many "onions" and each so distinctive. I started with the one large yellow onion then decided to add his red cousins. Not thrilled with the composition here (pre-planning would have been quite wise) and I am still adjusting to this new journal paper. I may have to revisit this challenge again with more "relatives".

Love the way you used your colors. Beautiful onions!

Are these done with colored pencils? I am new to your blog and don't know your medium--and am not that skilled myself to know mediums by sight all the time--hehe! They look burnished--that is why I ask. Lovely! :)

Sandy - this is great! I'm going to have to get some red onions, they're just so much more exciting than white or yellow... Thanks for visiting my blog. Marva
