Red Onions on White Cloth, 8
This is the last onion painting. I actually learned a lot about painting cloth from doing this, maybe not so much how to make the white have depth and shine instead of being flat - but the importance of laying the paint down in a manner that lets each piece of color co-exist. It seems to me that white takes an extra deft hand, but then it all takes a deft hand. In any case, I could SEE what would make it work, even if I can't yet do it at will. And J.L., as for the onions, I guess there is no there there.
