Habanero Pepper #2 – 5" x 7" (12.7 x 17.8 cm) – Oil Canvas Panel

I am finding painting peppers are fun. I am drawn to the wrinkles and how highlights will be on the crests and in the valleys. This photo does not really do it justice, same for the first pepper, because the texture in the dark background is just really setting off a bunch of interference reflections and this competes with the intense color of the pepper. I am working to figure out a way to overcome this hiccup, if I can get a better photo tomorrow I will share it with you.
