Red Pepper on its side

Another favorite subject in a simple pose.  I do like the shiny waxy highlights --they manage to convey the texture of the skin without being too shiny or too dull.  The bottom of the pepper was in shadow but had lots of reflected light from the tabletop. I painted it a very saturated but somewhat cooler red color and left the light struck front of the pepper a little warmer.
