Daily Painting - Still Life - Four Peppers

Four Peppers 8 in. x 10 in. Oil On Panel - SOLD

For me this painting is all about the color in those bell peppers. I saw them in the store and immediately decided to paint them. I really wanted to get that semi-translucent glow that the red, orange, and yellow peppers have. I used a gray-brown background and a reddish oak table when I set them up to accentuate the colors. I painted the red pepper on the left first and after it was finished I felt strongly that I had something going with the painting, and in the end I absolutely love the painting. I hope that you like it too.
