So here's my first attempt. Really got into this one and basically stopped looking at the reference photo. It was a fun exercise. Thank you Nolan for coming up with it and all your hard work putting it together. 


and now  :coffee:

Bob,

Good job on the onion and garlic.  Fun subject.

The very center of the garlic looks too round; needs to be blurred bit and less rigidly shaped.

Good effort.

great job Bob, beautiful shadings and good contrasts :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
I agree about the roundness of the garlic center, just flatten out the shading by lifting the darks with your kneaded eraser O0

Ann-Mari,

Good work on the onion and garlic.  Lots of texture with your shadings.

I notice the blue in the background on the right.  Did you try a watercolor wash or is it a reflections that the camera picked up?  I kind of like it that way.

Ann-Mari.


Happy to hear that you looked through the forum entries so that you got a chance to see what everyone else did before you started.  That was something I had wanted to mention to you when you started.  So good to see how we all can make the same thing look so different.

So good to see your progress.
