Respite from the Sun

Respite from the Sun

On a sweltering, sunny afternoon, the relief comes from fresh water and the shelter of shade. The coolness is welcoming from the starkness of the bright sun Watercolour painting by Janice Lyall

Brown Onion

Brown Onion

The outer shell of a brown onion is thin, transparent and delicate and has a wafer light, crinkle feel which is so different to the tearful, under layers. Watercolour painting by Janice Lyall

Red Onion

Red Onion

Red onions have a pleasing shine to their outer surface and have a rich, dark red which isn't often seen. Twirling one in my hand brings memories of childhood cricket in the playing fields Acrylic painting by Janice Lyall

Tray of Onions

Tray of Onions

So many colours and textures, they just invite hands to pick through to find the most pleasing onion. The task is then to unwrap the outer layers to find the fresh present beneath. Watercolour painting by Janice Lyall

Bag of Onions

Bag of Onions

Sometimes I forget all the places that I have stored onions and come across a bag months later which have started to sprout. The green shoots seem so fresh compared to the outer skins of the onion. All this life ready to burst forth! Acrylic painting by Janice Lyall

Out to Lunch

Out to Lunch

A long morning working in the warm fields and a welcome lunch to revitalise exhausted limbs for the next session. Fresh croissants, mature cheese, spring onions, a crisp cox apple and a small glass of sparkling cider. Watercolour painting by Janice Lyall
