I went into the kitchen for today's inspiration. My husband loves roasted pepper and came home with some lovely large red ones from the supermarket, but he wasn't allowed to cook them until after they had performed as my models.

About this painting
I painted this outdoors with the sun shining on the pepper. I place the pepper on a sheet of glass on top of a black serviette to get some reflection and for a better compostion on the square format. I tried to paint quickly so I would loose the high and low lights, but that pesky sun kept moving!
