This weeks painting challenge from Daily Paintworks was painting monochromes. I really enjoyed painting this glass float earlier this week, I had painted it using acrylic and full colour. With the monochrome I really enjoyed just concentrating on the values and edges. This painting also reminded me how much I enjoy painting in oils, so forgiving:)

I have painted this subject before and it is a bit of a challenge as the colour from cloth shows through the green glass so that can be a little tricky.
This was painted with Golden Open acrylics Jenkins Green, I received a sample package from Golden and was quite excited to try the Open acrylics. They definetely stay workable alot longer which makes it really easy to blend. I will post shortly on more info regarding Golden Acrylics.

I have been looking for red chilli peppers for a couple of months now and finally found some at a small grocery store. I really enjoyed painting all the reds in these spicy little beauties. My main focus for this painting was to loosen up and remember to leave some soft edges as I have a habit of wanting to have clean edges.
