I am fascinated by the shapes of fruit and vegetables. These peppers were self sown and had grown amongst my runner beans. I wanted to capture the shiny reflective skin while they were still fresh. The skin becomes dull if left. It was painted in strong sunlight which bounced off the blue plate. The peppers were a joy to paint and a joy to eat!
