Red Pepper

This is the first semi successful painting I've worked on since this fall. I have not done myself any favours by not painting regularly and I will be dedicating part of  my day hopfully everyday to painting.

This red pepper was all done in acrylic but I would like to go in with a touch of oils here and there where I had trouble blending the colours. I love the way oils feel and the natural glow that comes from them but it seems a tad bit easier to jump into a painting session with acrylic, I think it's because I am more familiar with them and they dry so quickly that I can apply glazes and build up the painting quicker.

Anyway now that I have a game plan lets see how well I can stick to it!
