RED PEPPER SLICES, 8X10, OIL
I don't usually get direct light in my house, but this time of year, when the sun in low, it streams in. I always get into still life then as I can usually get some very nice photos of set-ups. Oooh, I heard you all shutter at the thought of painting from photos instead of life, but that is what works best for me.
I tried to "puzzle paint" on this one, carefully placing each brushstroke, judging the color for temperature and value and finishing in one layer.
