Split Pepper


When I saw this pepper that my wife was cutting up for a meal she was preparing, I immediately thought that it would make a great companion piece to go with the three strawberries and the sliced tomato I had already painted.


Half of a bright red pepper resting on a cutting board with seeds, which fell out while cutting, scattered about. The left side of the pepper is in deep shadow while the light source comes from the front right-hand side. The pepper is set against a dramatic black background.
