Habanero Chili

A Habanero Chili, 5" by 7", oil on linen board, October 2008
Private collection, Newtown Square, Pennsylvania

Today I carved out a small study of a single habanero chili pepper. I was very challenged by the luminosity of the body of the pepper, while capturing a believable sense of light and gloss. I'm not sure how successful I was, and I'll probably revisit this subject again to see if I can't nail it down for once and for all. Shazam.
