Oil study #49

I like the pepper. I also like the brushstrokes in the fabric hanging in front. They're simple and suggest some texture. On the other hand I had trouble suggesting folds in the background without distracting too much from the pepper. So I removed them. I also forgot to go back and clean up the surface and rework the shadow a little more.

The shape and colour of the pepper are perfect and the stem is great - I bought one just like it this past weekend.

I really like this painting. The color and highlights are great, and so is the texture of the fabric.
