Auction: "Farm Stand Pepper"

"Farm Stand Pepper", Oil on Panel, 6" x 6.5"

Initial lay-in of color and design.
Background and darker colors added.

While training in Italy, I learned several painting techniques that I use interchangeably, depending on the subject and the overall effect I'm trying to achieve.  This healthy, farm stand pepper has so many vivid colors in it, besides the deep purple local color. To show off the transparency and the shifts of color, I did a base painting in brighter colors and added thin layers of deeper colors over the base painting.  To bid on this painting, click here.
