Today I started out to paint a yellow and a red bell pepper but none of my red colors could produce a red closer to that of the red pepper. Maybe that’s because I only use non-toxic colors and not the cadmium based reds and oranges. Producing bright red without cadmium colors will take some more experimentation, but that’s for another day.
Finally took red pepper out of the equation and painted this portrait of a yellow pepper.
