Pickled Peppers

I've been doodling a little this week - on a pepper frenzy! I like the interesting shapes of these vegetables but have previously found them a bit of a challenge. Only one way to beat a challenge! SO here are my peppers.
I've also been doing battle with lighting. My house is painted a sickly colour of very pale green and the light is awful. As a consequence everything ends up looking a little putrid! This week I set up my peppers with a spotlight from one side but bouncing the light off a red surface to give some interesting colour variations. It works a treat! Admittedly people might find the lamp suspended off an armchair and pieces of red plastic taped to lampshades a little odd! Whatever works is ok in my book!
