They were getting old, and I was getting picky.  I took an hour to play and loosen up, enjoying all those subtle colors.   Now it's time for fresh onions!

the progress:

this time I started using some oil to make a "wash" similar to the way watercolor starts.

I'm always surprised what a few light smears can turn out to be.

the palette midway - mostly burnt sienna, ultramarine, raw sienna and permanent rose for the leftover shell of a red onion.

these are in the round file now. The onions are more interesting when they make their own shapes .    11x14
