I started this painting a couple of weeks ago and ended up discarding it. I set up this still life arrangement and sat down to paint from observation as a change of pace from the other pieces I’m working on which are largely imaginative and require a lot of interpolation.
Painting from observation was fun, but truth be told I lost patience toward the end and decided to discard the painting because it missed its target for me. I still included a picture of how it turned out (see above), which still contains some unfinished areas. I therefore named it “The discarded onion”.
