“Dried Espelette peppers”

Today’s model – a bunch of dried Espelette papers, hanging in our kitchen. I bought it a long time ago, but with all my love of hot chilies, it is still there, untouched, because it looks so pretty on a string.

Another painting/sketch which I have done with oil on paper.

The paper has almost no grain and still, I really like how oil interacts with it. You can put it on diluted or thick – it takes it beautifully.
