Yellow banana pepper

Banana pepper hangs off my desk lamp, drying, changing colors, whithering, drying. Probably one or two more studies left before it becomes seasoning.

Pepper Studies

Prismacolors, graphite pencils and ink.

Pencil and graphite penicls

Pencil study for my the two peppers I've been drawing. I had cleaned up my drawing area so we can eat, I've had my papers and pencils sprawled out on the dining room table. As i was cleaning I laid one pepper on top of the other and looked at it again and decide they looked great together... and the notion hit me that they should be suspended.

Orange Pepper

Same orange pepper as below. It is a very mature Hot Banana Pepper. I think this drawing has more form.

Drew this before I went to Chicago. Pencil and prismacolor with ink .

Flying to Chicago - Pencil Sketch

Flew into Chicago. Drew only two images; I usually do more drawings, but I felt like reading.

Hot Banana pepper

I've drawn 3 peppers so far as well as the small grouping I posted around September 27. I finally broke down and purchased a new back pack. Not exactly what I was looking for, but most important it is very sturdy.

Not sure what will be next, I am thinking about letting the peppers dry and shrivel and then perhaps draw them again. I'm getting ready to go to Chicago and will probably draw people at the airport again. Love doing that - makes me feel good to look back at the drawings. Remembering the people, the things they did while I drew them, as well as their nuances while I secretly observed them.

Finished reading my spy between interest right now. Not Sure if I want to read fiction or non-fiction.

I did buy some new colored pencils and am looking for something new. I want to be able to apply lighter colors over dark colors and not sure what medium to use.
