This step by step demonstration in oils shows how I painted this composition of onions conceived by Renoir. The onions appear tumbled upon the table by accident and, in the style of Renoir the brushwork appear by accident. The background offers subtle contrast with the foreground (pastel cool colours against deep warm colours). Similarly, the diagonal movement of paint over the background conflicts with the organic paintwork of the vegetables.

Oil colours used are: titanium white, cadmium yellow, permanent rose, ultramarine, cerulean, burnt umber, burnt sienna and viridian. Sables around no. 6 and a thin bristle were used and the painting (in real time) was completed in about an hour.
