Veggie Painting Challenge.

Corn and Onion - 8 x 10

This is my version of the current DSFDF challenge. I had a lot of fun doing it. I concentrated on keeping control of my values, hard and soft edges, and chroma. The onion is the obvious focal point, with the cast shadows creating a fun and interesting pattern to bring you through the rest of the composition. The colors I chose were yellow, green, and a neutral red.

This was my first time participating in a DSFDF challenge, but I think I will keep participating. It is so fun to see how each artist interprets the same subject matter differently.

If you are interested in this or any other piece of mine, please CONTACT ME. I accept payment via check or paypal.
