I like this image & your choice of color & rendering is real nice.
Now correct me if I'm wrong: On a galvanized pail (which this appears to be), which is not a pure reflective surface, should not the onion reflection be a little bit subdued?
Not criticizing your work; just trying to learn here. Would love to get your comment.
@recycled_crayons: Thanks for your comments! I did make it more subdued than the onion, but maybe not enough? This is my first time ever painting galvanized metal and my first time painting a reflection in galvanized metal, so there are definitely things I could improve.
Check out the photo of the set up in the step by step thread, the reflection of the onion is pretty bright. But I think that if I did this over I would make the color of the onion in the reflection not so intense.
