One, two, three...peppers!



 I bought these little sweet peppers just because of their interesting shapes and I admit I sorted through to find the best.







This was the the most difficult to paint as it was curled up more than the others.  It's always difficult to find the right coloured green and for the peppers I used a yellow green mixed with a couple of transparent blues.






I like to  paint my vegetables and fruit on a white cloth, reflecting the light in lovely pools of colour.  Everything has it's season....my chilli peppers are ready to be picked so look out for those soon!

Cathy, these are very nice! You've really captured the curviness of them.

Lovely studies. So you don't pick the biggest you pick the quirkiest.

Exactly Polly...and they tasted good too!

I love your vegetable drawings and the range of colors you get in each one.

Fabulous! I've been known to pick up things on the street, in parks and while hiking because I thought they'd make good drawing fodder. I hadn't thought about bring the practice to the produce section -- good idea.
