Paint a Pepper!

Hi friends! This is the latest in my Quarantine still life series…

In today’s video I’ll share some tips with water mixable oil paints as I demonstrate how to paint this pepper.

The paints and brushes I used can be found in my new signature set from Jerry’s Artarama! These techniques can also be applied to traditional oils or gouache, and if you work fast enough, acrylics so use what you have and paint along! Below is the reference photo.

I recommend taking a reference photo when painting food or flowers that may deteriorate before you finish the painting. I took the photo above with my cellphone. You don’t need anything fancy.

I am so pleased with the way this painting turned out and it was fun to paint too. I hope you are safe and healthy and til next time happy crafting!
