Study of Onion Skin

This is a small watercolour study in which I tried to capture the lightness and fragility of an onion skin. There's always so much to learn from the simplest objects. I love the colour scale of onions, the browns and golds, and the delicate stripes that go from the roots up. It's a small detail which gives a lot of character.
