I'm getting closer, but will keep working.
More work on the defining the platter and developing the peppers.
I start in on the peppers and platter working quickly.
I start adding color quickly blocking the green pepper in and the green cloth.
I use a thin wash of Alizaran Crimson and mineral spirits to tone the canvas. I then used a mix of the Alizaran Crimson and Ultramarine Blue and start the drawing and laying in my darks.
