Cilantro Peppers, a Work in Progress

My painting of the Cilantro peppers is coming along well.  These three photos show the progress and changes I made as I worked out the final design.  I’m combining three photographs I took of peppers, string beans and eggplant.  I’m adding a dose of imagination with the surrounding items.  The basket is challenging and I like how the various textures are working out.

I decided to place all of this on an old blue door for a bit of visual interest.  This is painted on a very smooth canvas with a succession of washes and glazes, sanding it down between paint applications.  I hope to finish this painting as part of the demonstration I will be doing at the Spring Fling Art Show and Sale on May 15th. See the Events page for more details.
