Acrylic on Canvas, 11" x 14"

Today my Mom came over and we painted together. It was so much fun! We are taking a class together and I did another painting of some limes and a wine bottle, but I wasn't happy with it and I tried to fix it but it just wasn't working. When I fix it, I will post it.

So we set this up and painted, and I am really quite happy with the way it came out. I am especially proud of the glass effect. The other thing I like are the "Munsell" color complements. If you are not familiar with the Munsell color wheel, you should google it. I think it is better for painters once you have your traditional color wheel down.

Trio of Bell Peppers

11" x 14" Acrylic on Canvas

I love the colors in this painting. The composition could be better. This was a bit larger than my scanner, so I had to photograph it. I took it outside and laid it in the shade to minimize reflections. I think it turned out ok. My favorite is the orange pepper.
