'Pointy Pepper'

'Pointy Pepper' 
Oil on Canvas Board (30x30cm) 
For Sale £75 (inc worldwide shipping)

I actually painted this yesterday after the cups as I knew I would be busy today with Garden Design work. Things are looking up for the garden design business after a quiet time and work is coming on line again! Now I just need to be able to paint AND do my full time job!

I am not a great fan of peppers to eat, but, I do like the way they look, especially these pointy one! I have learnt with oils to put the white highlights on first and not after as I do with acrylics. It was important with this subject to get the lovely glossy skin right. I also prime the board with an acrylic wash as it dries quicker than doing it in oils and I can get started on the painting! Not good at waiting!
