Painting No. 73 - Los Habaneros

16" x 8" - Oil on Stretched Canvas
Available for Purchase

Back to the new stuff. For number 73 we have some Habanero Peppers. I had run out of my canvas panels and decided to use a 16" x 8" stretched canvas that was purchased earlier in the year. I bought several of them back in April but ran out of gas trying to do the larger paintings.

It's hard to really judge the size on the web but it's four times the size of the 6" x 6" ones I've been doing. This was a little bit of a challenge but it was also nice to have a little room to paint. I laid them down on some light blue fabric and looked straight down at them while painting. My favorite part is the shadows of the stems on the fabric.
