One evening my husband was preparing dinner. On his cutting board I found a Spanish onion just cut in half. I said to Tony "look at that face in the onion! I promptly took the onions away to Tony's dismay. I found a white piece of paper, stood one half of the onion on it and lit it with a desk light. The shadow it cast looked like her dress. I photographed both halves of the onion. Viewing the photos on the computer the characters were very obvious. This one called a "Lady with a violin", came about as a result of her stance and the shadow colour. All I needed to do was add the violin, legs and facial detail. The colour of the artificial light helped create the atmosphere.
