"Pepper"

Sold
"Pepper"
6 x 8 in
Oil on Belgium Linen Panel
I started this one with a dry brush, and essentially I paint all these small paintings in this manner.  I use no mediums for these quick paintings, which has been interesting so far.
I love the beginning process of these paintings because I am not concerned with blending it too perfection, I just paint freely and try not going to tight.  
After I get it to a mid level I move onto the stem of the pepper.  At this stage I am introducing the local colors and modeling the bigger forms.
I then filled in the background and the base, again just keeping it loose to get the local color and model the big forms.
This is the final painting, I took the base further as well as the pepper.  I had a lot of fun rendering this painting, I learned a lot and how to keep things in a certain stage and take things further without looking too over modeled.
