Three Peppers

Another small painting - 1/8 sheet (7.5" x 11") on Fabriano Artistico coldpress 140#. I just used my last sheet of Arches and am almost out of Fabriano 140. All I have left is 300# and Twinrocker - guess I'll have to break down and use the good stuff!
























This one is also from a photo taken by madmum at Wet Canvas. If you are in need of inspiration, check out their Image Reference Library - all the photos are copyright free (but do give the artist their props if you use their photo for a painting).

Very beautiful, rich color - the pomegranate painting from AWS must have inspired you!

Thanks, Deb. I had this one finished before seeing the AWS painting - but it was still inspiring. Still painting little ones until I figure out what I really want to paint!

This pepper painting is pure "eye candy" Rhonda. Great color, values, composition, contrasts. Excellent!

Thanks, Ann, but I can't take credit for anything but painting what I saw in the photo by madmum - it was just one of those photos that had to be painted!
