No 24. Hot Chillis. Almost an oxymoron

I needed a bit of heat, this morning. The weather has now turned very blustery and wet. I picked these up at the supermarket last night specifically for the purpose of painting them. I'm not going to attempt to eat them -hopefully my lovely wife has a better idea of how to use them. Maybe a lively curry...mmmm.

The most difficult thing with this was the background -I couldn't match the lime green of the background using the leaf green that I normally have on my palette. Fortunately, I had a tube of cadmium green which, when mixed with a cool yellow and white, got me to where I wanted to go.
