Moving on from the cherries, I've decided to try some colorful hot peppers in a plate. I'm using the Rtistx RTX 300 board especially for colored pencil. After drawing the peppers, I've done a colorful underpainting with Caran d'Arche Supracolor watercolor pencils and water. I want the peppers to be very vibrant because the plate behind them is colorful and I really want the peppers to stand out. I've worked the plate in subtle tones of colored pencil for now. As I work on the peppers I will adjust the values and colors on the plate. My next step is to go back into the peppers with colored pencil.
