The next OnLine WatercolorDC class, Veggies 2, will be July 2nd.
We’ll look at the work people have done over the week.
We’ll talk a bit about making peppers look three dimensional and interesting.
Then we’ll get to painting.
Due to popular demand we’ll be doing peppers. Have a sketch ready. Choose a pepper from below, use a photo of your own, or do your own sketch. I’m going to suggest that we use only two colors – red and green, yellow and purple, or orange and blue.

If you’re nervous about having a sketch, or need to review the Gray lesson, go to the TechShort page for the videos From photo to sketch, and The colors of Gray

Reference Pictures of Veggies – Peppers.

I like the paintings more than the photos I found, so I started with them. I especially like the first two paintings, since they both make use of the colors of gray. The red and green that don’t become gray and the yellow that uses purple for the shadow. Where there are several peppers in a reference picture feel free to do fewer.
