An Orange Pepper

An Orange Pepper, 5" by 7", oil on linen board, November 2008
Private collection, Ellicott City, Maryland

Today I finished carving out a very small study of an orange pepper. The luminosity of this subject played a big part in understanding the gradations from light to dark, and the amount of light that played through the pepper was almost stronger than the light that was reflected in the sheen of the surface.
