I thought my head would explode trying to paint these bell peppers! The curves and turns are so complex and challenging. They're great models because you have to abandon any preconceived belief that you "know" what they look like. I had to keep returning my mind to just looking at shapes of value and color and hoping the objects would become recognizable on their own. I also handled the ground differently by using a red where the bells would roughly be and a brownish-green under the back "wall" to see if the light background would recede more easily.
