Painting exhibited at the West Buckland Festival 2012

Onions

oil paint on paper

I very rarely get inspired to paint these days but I saw a painting by Renoir entitled ‘Onions’  at the Royal academy last week and decided to give it a go.

My painting ‘Onions’ is nothing like the Renior but… The skin of the red onions were iridescent like the back of a beetle, shimmering and layered in colour.

The picture above is of my painting exhibited in ‘The Gallery’ of the West Buckland Festival.

He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish.
