Sweet Red Pepper, 4x6 Acrylic


This pepper is from our garden - Tim and I thought it was a Bell Pepper, but... no!  It's sweet and beautiful, too.  We've been having a nice summer harvesting all kinds of tomatoes, eggplants (which I'll try to paint this week), and some sort of globular cucumbers.  I tried actually not to be conscious of what I 'should' and 'shouldn't' do as I painted this... consequently it went very fast!  I think sometimes I 'think' paintings to death.  But after a while you can kind of let it go and paint on autopilot.  Let me know what you think... Pin It

  5. It makes me want a pepper, that's for sure! Sometimes you have to trust that you know what to do... and just do it.

    Anyway, that's why you paint every day, to learn by trying, explore, and see what happens.

  7. I love a pepper painting. You created a great color harmony (which so eluded me the other say) and fabulous 'boxy' pepper shape. One of your best, I think.
