I took a picture of these peppers one evening before cutting them up for stir fry. The painting began as kind of a different approach for me…more like an experiment. I worked with some acrylic medium I’d never used before. I didn’t love the transluscent effect it gave the paint and ended up feeling as if I’d overworked what began as a nice free piece. I’m going to try it again with a bigger brush and allow myself less brush strokes. It was a fun nights project.
I am determined I’m going to begin doing some experimenting with different tools and mediums which means getting away from the idea of a finished piece and allowing myself to mess up a lot in order to learn. Will be worth it though.
