cocktail onions #2 5x7

I painted some cocktail onions a while ago when I first started this project. I like this painting better. It seems more cohesive to me. You can compare it to the other one by clicking here.

I think the onions in the first painting were more defined.

Yes I agree. One of the things that attracted me to this subject was the way the onions sort of glow and blur together. I'm starting to experiment with not defining every little detail as I get a little more experience as a painter. I think it gets the viewer more involved. Thanks for all you great comments!
