Red Onions and Leeks
About this artwork
Artist Pat Doherty paints a still life of red onions and leeks in an impressionistic fashion. In creating my paintings, I draw on my experience as a former commercial art director and designer, shares Pat. She seeks out her subjects at farmer's markets and bakeries and then returns to her studio to simplify the details into bright, graphic arrangements. Pat takes time to balance the elements in her compositions and establish good color relationships between light and shadow.
