The finished painting, cant say much more really.  There are still only 3 colours in the whole canvas, titanium white, sap green and raw umber.  The only thing that I still have to do is to put a black wash over the background, the reason for that is it's really difficult to match a frame to raw umber.

I have added another two layers of red and one of green today.  In the background you can see the peppar that I am using for the painting and, yes, it is orange.  I decided that I preferred the red one so have just changed the colour.  I will put on another 2 or 3 layers of colour until I get the depth that I need and will then start adding white for the highlights, which is my favourite part of any painting.  I have now found an image that I would like to use in my next one so will be starting that later today.  I have also got to add some more to that portrait that I started as most of that is now dry.  If I do any to that I will update again later.  Hope you all had a good day today.
