Red Hot Peppers

Look what just came off my easel!
I started with a 24" square stretched canvas. Next came a few layers of yellow ochre acrylic paint. Once that was dry, I mapped in the shape of the bowl and pencilled in some markings for the peppers.
The beautifully coloured peppers were grown on our deck this past summer. The bowl was brought back from a recent trip to Mazatlan. Working from a photo I took this fall, I started to lay in the colours and blacked the background.
Once I had that all figured out, the photo went away and I began to play.
"Red Hot Peppers"
Till Next Time ...
From the Prairies, to the West Coast and Beyond...
