Oil on Canvas Panel
I started with a dry brush approach again no mediums were used, then I went into the shadows of the pepper with ivory black and permanent rose. I am just dabbing where the darks are stated with thin paints.
Then I went into the mid tones or mid values with cadmium red and ivory black. Then I went into the base and added the dark tones first with ivory black and burnt umber. I am not using any mediums through out these stages. I am keeping the paints really thin so the drying time can go quicker and also its much easier to control the values and chroma.
Then I added the light of the base which was yellow ochre and titanium white and a bit of burnt umber. I also put the background color in which was naples yellow, a bit of cerulean blue and titanium white.
