Red Onion in White Bowl

"Red Onion in White Bowl"

8 X 8

Oil on Hardboard

I used a limited palette for this painting.  Raw Umber (which I rarely use), Ultramarine Blue, Alizrin Chrimpson, Yellow Ochre, white and black.  I also started with a raw umber wash.  I am pleased with the continuity the limited palette provided.

Here is how it might look framed.


  1. Love your style and this is rich in colour and texture!!

  2. I really like the palette here also Karla. I agree it provides continuity but you've also got wonderful depth!

  3. Simple and efficacious ..love the color palette and the rich strokes .
