Night Onion

It's a bit counter intuitive that something I paint during the day, using just natural light, turns out a pretty dark painting; but if I paint something at night needing to use artificial light, it's a very bright painting. I love playing around with the different color temperature of the light source too. This painting is lit with a very warm incandescent bulb, so all the colors are washed in orangey yellow. I've got a few more coming like this, just playing with the light, though there will be a bit of a break coming until the end of the month.

  1. This is a stunner and caught my eye right away on DPW. I love the way you captured the warm light and emphasized the cool side.
