The Three Amigos - WIP

Here's the next WIP (Work in Progress) picture.   I had a challenge mixing the colors for the Fiesta chartreuse bowl.   Since it's a well known color by collectors, I wanted to make sure it was dead on....

Laying in Paint - Three Amigos

My goal is to paint the peppers to reflect the glossiness I can see - you know the waxiness fresh peppers have naturally?  ...:)

The Three Amigos - Studio Set up

Here's the studio set up for the painting...

The Three Amigos

I'm starting this blog intending on posting something at least 5 days out of the week.  If time permits, I'll also post on Saturday and Sundays.   I hope you'll join me and revisit the progress of my work.  Thanks for stopping by.. :)  

Here is the set up for some wonderfully fresh red bell peppers found at our local natural foods market - Sprouts.  I  have posed one inside of an antique Fiesta chartreuse bowl.  I thought the vibrant reds of the peppers and the light green of the bowl would compliment each other.
