Oil study #50

Onions... not that easy. I'll need to try again. I like the rendering of the right onion, but I gave up on the left one. The corner in the background looks funny... The reflection is a bit strong but I kind of like it.

I like the onions - each has its own charm! With the angle of the light coming down from the left, the shadows of the onions are really good. I am not sure I agree that the reflections are too strong. I guess I would have to see them weaker but I do like both the reflections. Is there any principle involved in choosing the background colours?

Bob,
my principle for background
so far is "trial and error" ;-) I'll have to study other painters' backgrounds...
