I decided to paint this one as quickly as possible -although I didn't time myself. I think it took a little over half an hour. I wanted to do this in order to stop myself from becoming embroiled in the details and becoming overly descriptive. I also wanted to have a more sober feel than I have been getting lately. I like what I've come up with here.
Here's a pic of the setup. As you can see, I made the background greyer than reality. I did this to try to focus the eye on the peppers themselves.
