Red Peppers, 4x6 OSWA

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.
