Daily Painting - Still Life- Peppers In A Box

Peppers In A Box 5 in. x 7 in. Oil On Panel - SOLD

The subject is three peppers. A jalapeno, a habanero, and a red chili. The wooden box is an old eye-glasses case that my grandfather had, probably from the 1930's. Painting peppers is always interesting because of the intense colors. Today I wanted to do something different than the typical 'pepper on a table painting'. So I put them in their own little compartment in the box, the divider is a piece of cardboard cut to fit which I think gives it a neat studio painting feel. To me this painting has a significant color intensity and warmth. I hope that you enjoy it
