The beautiful onions were part of good haul bought last year at the Farmers Market. They were coloured with the new Faber Castelle Aquarelle water-colour pencils that I bought. These pencils are quite hard and create a very sharp line. They don't blend instantly with water and so even if you add water, you retain the edge of the lines. I'm not sure that I like that although for this drawing it worked well. In the actual onions you do see distinct lines of colour, but it makes
the shadows not so believable.
And in the continuing adventure of learning the Mac Book and flying without a printer/scanner, I uploaded this as a photo taken with the iPhone in natural daylight. This little sketchbook is nearly filled and over time the pages have curved quite a bit and it is hard to take a good photo. I think I'll switch to a different kind that stays flat. I do think that the photo colour is very true to the sketch colours. I think I can make this work!
