The original piece was created on canvas in hand-blended oil pastel with a hand-painted acrylic white background. Muted orange, candied red and saffron yellow are blended to make the body of the pepper. Soft taupe highlighted with firey yellow and white bring the seeds to life, while flecks of black nestle deep in the chili. The dry stem is accented with muddy green, bark and smoke gray.
My giclées are printed on acid-free Somerset Velvet paper with Epson Ultrachrome professional archival inks. The authentic watercolor-quality paper shows radiant whites, rich details and vivid color. Your print will be hand-signed on the front and shipped in a protective paper sleeve and bend-resistant backing board. Watermark does not appear on print.
