Garden Peppers

It’s a practically a fiesta in my kitchen with all of our peppers! Well, we’ve got a happy plateful anyway.

I’m trying to paint their skins to look shiny, as sometimes my peppers look too matte. I think painting from life can be visually overwhelming sometimes, I know that I lose focus if I am staring at highlights too long! I used a lot of Alizarin Crimson oil paint, but I did have some Cad Red to warm the peppers up. So far so good and there are more models from the garden to paint.
