Observational onion drawing

I was looking at some onions after dinner and felt like doing a short observational drawing. One layer, no adjustment layers or filters or anything, one simple brush (a square brush) – really basic. It’s been forever since I’ve done an observational drawing that wasn’t a quick gesture, this was fun.

      Hi! The technique for this drawing was with a square brush on one layer, painted the same way as I paint in real life with oils – only instead of using tubes of oil paint I could just choose the colors I wanted using the color picker. There weren’t any adjustments/blending modes used. It took about an hour. :)
