Pepper in a box

I'm still experimenting with my new oils. I've seen a lot of still life paintings of fruit and veg on blogs that I follow and so thought I'd give it a try. I struggled a bit as the light isn't always very good at this time of year, but it was a useful exercise nonetheless - one which I shall definitely be repeating. Despite all the usual grumbles.. too much detail, too small brush, etc. I'm pleased with my first attempt and am posting it mainly so I can look back on it, to measure my improvement in months to come.

Another plus. I don't get to use much red paint with concentrating mostly on landscapes, so it was a nice chance to mix some different colours!
