8x10" Still life Oil Painting Red Pepper Impressionist Art Handmade by Carol Schiff

I found a perfect red bell pepper at the market and purchased it to paint and eat. I sliced it in half and placed it on my favorite piece of pottery. I decided to puzzle paint this piece.

It is important to judge each stroke with the neighboring area. Is it lighter or darker, is it warmer or cooler, and the edges hard or soft?
