Onions & Garlic

Onions & Garlic
Watercolor
6 1/4" x 9 3/4"
Fabriano Aristico 140lb. Soft Press Paper
 
I painted over the value study I posted earlier today, using Cobalt Blue, Pthalo Blue, Quin. Violet, Quin. Gold, Quin. Burnt Orange.  As mentioned in the earlier post, the reference photo used was taken by yabby from the Wet Canvas Photo Reference Library.  My thanks to Mollie Jones for the suggestion to add color to the value study.

Hey Ann...you know I just love this one. Hope you'll try this technique again as it does just sing with all those dark values going on.
