Very nice texture. Now if we could just add a few tomatoes and a dollop of olive oil....oh, never mind. I got side tracked. lol.

Cheers Elizabeth had to work to keep the reflection brushwork smooth to achieve the right look of the pepper shiny surface

Hey Kathleen I like the idea of salsa- I might rename it 'Salsa time'

I was struggling to come up with a decent title...

Simple, but effective. It has great balance and palette. Looks like an Italian meal about to start to me. Thanx 4 posting, it pleaseth thine eyes.:wink2:

It even has the Italian flag colours!!
Thanks for the kind words:)

very nicely done! It looks like an oil, you have captured the textures!

Thanks Colleen- used glaze medium to build up some transparent layers and final layers and highlights utilise Impasto gel

Helps me approximate effects I can get with oils-but so much quicker!

nice one ryan
you kept it simple and fresh indeed!

Am enjoying painting the white background as it helps me keep the image bright and colourful!

Arl- Thanks for looking in!

TxAggieDarlin- I'm loving the vibrant colours of fruit and veg! Made a nice spicy curry, yum

Lavenderfrost- Cheers- I like the still lifes in your banner by the way!

Charlies mum- THanks for commenting on the drawing- the high viewpoint made for more interesting perspective

Debee- Cheers!
