Four quick ten minute onions


This is another series of ten minute paintings, for the Daily Paintworks Challenge by Carol Marine.

"Tearless Fearless Four" 6x6 inches on panel, painted with slow drying acrylics (Atelier and Golden Open). I really enjoy doing this kind of painting, but I also love my whimsical fantasy work too. Maybe I can whomp up enough energy for both kinds!

Lookin' good! (I am thinking tempura so you convinced me they are real and ready to slice!)

I hear you have to be THIN SKINNED in order to adequately paint onions. What say?

Theresa Bayer said...

Thanks Lee!

LOL Rick! When you're painting onions with water based media, you definitely have to avoid shedding tears on the paint!

Ahhh! The aroma is nuanced in layers for this work. The painting area must have evoked "EuREEKa" from your adoring fans, watching you embellish but capture the subtleties of reality in a moment of extreme excellence!

Thanks Rick! You're really good at verbal layering. You've expressed a concept that can be peeled straight to the core of its essence, yet retains its mystery. You should go into business writing artist's statements!

Hi Theresa, thanks for the comment, I figure let me hop over and see your work too.

Very nice onions, but I love you "fantasy" work. They have a warm and magical feel!

I've been seeing these 10 minute paintings all over the "blog" world. They are so cool and you did a great job on yours!

Nice job on the onions. They look luminous.
