Onions and garlic are the perfect marriage. It's lasted a long time, and has been the start of many beautiful dishes. Almost anything can be made to taste rich and complex using these two ingredients as a base. OK, maybe not chocolate cake and lemon meringue pie, but most savory dishes use them. Think of how bland food would be without them.
This blog celebrates the beauty in ordinary things and today I invite you to celebrate the humble garlic and onion. Look at their voluptuous shapes and vibrant yet delicate colors. Onion skins have also made contributions to ink and textile colorings, as well. These two vegetables are often reviled for their strength and aroma, but we still love them.

I used watercolor pencils in the Robert Bateman sketchbook.
Nice little portrait of friends of all of us! BTW, onions are the most commonly used vegetable in the world ... no surprise there! nancy
Sorry to hear about your problems with computers and routers. I hope everything is okay and fixed now.
Beautiful drawing and what a true fact. I hated both garlic and onion when I was little, and I can't live without them today ^^
