Cable Crossing

This was an after work try. These pepper forms give me trouble. I need a intellectual que to help me stay on track. I've seen others peppers and I should be able to do this.

Above the stems

6x8 oil on canvas panel

Last for the pear. Went on the menu for lunch.  The fuji remains for todays lunch.

6x8 oil on canvas panel

The fuji is an odd shape. It's illuminated with a 40w bulb. I think that this is too low and causes a problem for me.
