L'Orange, The Shy Pepper #3

It may be time to go back to more round fruits/veg's with a few less planes. Still trying to learn how to impart value in the color, you know, how to make orange dark. Add its complement? Shall I go back to monochrome? Here is a shy pepper, turned away with stem peeking.

  1. I like monochrome, but I don't think you need to go back to it for your pepper. I like the colors choices and the great highlights you add. You make a pepper too pretty to eat! Enjoy... xoxo

  2. I love it! We are often critical of our own work. After these last few paintings, find myself want to bake and stuff some peppers! Which means your making them look really delicious.

  3. Liz, you are on fire! A pepper is a pepper and you have created a fine series fit for a chilled gazpacho!
    I agree with Debra, stuffed peppers do sound yummy.
    I know Mom made them and to me that was a special dinner growing up!
