Olive Oil and Onions

Olive oil and Onions, Oil on Canvas Board, (10" x 12")

Many Hindus in India (and I believe across the world too) abstain from onions for a period of about four months from Shravan to Karthik (which roughly coincides with August to November). Therefore, to ensure that the onion merchants dont go out of business I thought I can atleaast use some onions in my paintings.

I did this one after a long time, nearly 2 weeks since my last painting.
Please let me know what you think about this. All comments and critiques are most welcome.

Still Life

Vintage Car and Dubliners, Oil on Canvas Board, (10" x 12")

I am really enjoying doing these still lives in oil. The car is a small wooden toy and it was quite difficult getting all the dimensions as well as the tones right. I hope to do better the next time I do this subject.
