Vegetable Still Life, Red Pepper Painting, "Big Red" by Carol Schiff, 20x24x1.5" Oil
It has been some time since I have painted a vegetable still life, so I decided to try one this week. In the past I painted every fruit and vegetable you could imagine, but they were small pieces, usually 6x8" or smaller.
This one is actually 20x24" and painted with a combination of palette knife and brush. You will notice with this next image below, that the the background is actually more gray green than the blue shade above. I must have taken 20 photos of this, trying to get the colors correct, but in the end I had to choose between the bluish background and the front end of the pepper turning a garish orange mustard hue. Yuck! At any rate, the photo below seems quite accurate in both places.
Thank you for viewing my blog today. I hope you enjoy this vegetable still life painting. Give it a pin!
