Oil study #107, 106

I did a value study today because I had trouble with my values again in yesterday's painting (below) . I also replaced the pepper with an orange.

This is yesterday's painting. I thought it was a no show before the end: I wiped out the pepper a few times and got tired.. and careless... A few hours later I regretted not being more careful in finishing it. I had trouble with the values on this one. The bottle in the back is almost black... so either the pepper was too dark or the bottle too light...

I actually like your pepper very much. I do love these still lifes Johanne, they are lovely and you are handling oils beautifully.
