A pepper-tastic image that brings the high heat
It’s possible that there is no better subject for a still life painting than peppers. They have a glossy texture unlike any other produce and reflect light and colors around them in the warmest way.
Hot Wired is my 2018 take on these lovely subjects, piled up invitingly in a 1950s metal truck. The contrast of the pepper’s flesh with the cool metal of the truck was a delight to paint.
The lighting I used in Hot Wired was designed to offer a warm, mellow glow. The gentle spotlight makes the peppers glint and also gives a soft reflection on the varnished wood.
If you enjoy Hot Wired, I invite you to look at my other prints featuring peppers: Richard Hall pepper prints
