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.
