Still Life-Red and Yellow Peppers Painting

Still Life-Red and Yellow Peppers Painting

Learn how to draw and paint a Still Life with Red and Yellow Peppers. Bright colors! The best ingredients to create an amazing painting.

Drawing instructions:

  1. Divide your canvas in half, vertically and horizontally with a line. Blue lines 1 and 2 in sample.
  2. In the right side, draw a vertical line in the position where you want to place your yellow pepper, line 3. In the center of these 2 lines draw line 4.
  3. Draw an oval (line 5) for the structure of your yellow pepper attached to line 2 and 3. In the center and top of line 4 draw another small oval (line 6). From this oval start drawing the secondary folds of the structure formation of the pepper. Think about light and shade.
  4. Duplicate the same process for your left pepper.

Still Life-Red and Yellow Peppers Drawing

Painting Instructions:

  1. In this painting I did an under-paint of light yellow and light red with a lot of water to be absolved by the canvas, using acrylics because they dry faster. The under paint is very important because you are continuing to draw with colors and defining light and shade in your final painting.
  2. Now you can paint the background. Select a background that you would like for the two combinations of the sample paintings. Paint table with the shading of the peppers.
  3. Enjoy painting your red and yellow peppers. Put special attention to the blending of colors.
