Red Peppers 1, 2, & 3, 4″ x 6″ watercolors on Arches
Here are three different approaches to painting part of a red bell pepper.
Red Pepper 1 relies on the reds and yellows to create depth and shadow.
Red Pepper 2 relies on the blues and purples for shadowing, but I think it feels “labored”.
In Red Pepper 3, I stopped trying so hard and slapped paint where ever it “felt” right. And then I stopped. I think I like this one the best.
