Still life painting of peppers

A daily painting I suppose as it was painted in just under three hours...I'm a slow painter. I think you learn more from doing these small pieces every day as opposed to spending a month or so on a series of works.
'Despite the small size of pochade paintings, there's no reduction in the mental energy expended to produce them'. Kevin Macpherson.

Setting up these small pieces in the lid of the pochade box is a really good habit to get into as a working practice. Painting becomes second nature and you iron out all the practical problems, meaning and you are less likely to find you've forgotten something when your working far from home.
