I bought a huge bag of onions this week, and became fascinated by the layered skins, the papery thin, fragile stuff that looks a lot like rice paper. So I sketched them in sepia ink....and then I sketched them in black ink. Then I crushed the skins into boiling water and made a dye to dip handmade rag paper into. It came out a beautiful mottled golden color! Then I made dinner. Amazing what will inspire you....
