PEPPERS ON WATERCOLOR BOARD



I wasn't in love with the firecracker peppers although it had lots of energy so...began another, more traditional wet on dry Arches watercolor board, but still a few drips and drizzles to come before I finish it.  


Linda worked on her painting of the peppers and finished it.  Joy worked on her truck, lifting some heavy paint on the truck, and then playing with colors on a scrap piece of paper (sometimes you just need to play!).



And I finished my peppers, giving them a little bit more movement and energy without the drizzles = 
a softer explosion! ha ha

Looks awesome, Rhonda! Love the splatter background on this piece.

Looks good Rhonda. But I have to say, I love the stark white highlights in the first pic. That gave me that shiny, slick coat peppers wear.

Thanks, Sherry - good to hear from you!

Thanks, Elizabeth and thanks for your honesty - I did soften the whites way too much and lost that brightness but they are both ok though different.

Thanks, Carol!

like how shiny the top one looks, but really like the shadows you put on it in the end :)

Rhonda- these peppers look brilliant and so life like. Love your drizzled too. Hope you are having a superb day. Hugs!
