Peppers - peperoni grandi e piccini

Updated: Aug 23, 2020

This one was done very much "alla prima", starting with a totally untreated background on a cardboard-for-oils A4. My folks liked it a lot, so it's actually my first painting to be framed!


  • Lamp Black

  • Paynes Grey

  • Flake White

  • Permanent Green Light

  • Emerald Green

  • Sap Green

  • Permanent Rose

  • Cadmium Yellow (pale hue)

  • Burnt Umber

  • Raw Sienna

Medium "alla prima":

  • 2 parts Turpentine

  • 4 parts Liquin Original

  • 2 parts Damar Varnish

  • 2 parts Linseed Oil

As always I start with a really rough sketch, and I "draw" directly with the brush.

This is how it looked like at the end of this layer, as you can see it was almost finished:

The day after (the alla prima medium allowed me to paint it that soon!) I simply added some glazing and highlights, so this is it finished now:
