Many Layers

Once again, in 20 minutes, I am dazzled by the complexity in such an ordinary natural object, the humble white onion. Besides the many layers that lie underneath its outer papery skin, rendering the parallel lines that radiate out from the roots to stem was necessary to get the spherical shape correct. I also love the balance of colors present, from pale peach to acid green to bluish gray in the shadows. Watercolor, 5 1/2" x 8".
