For the Love of Chiles

As you will see, sometimes I just like to have fun with a painting.  So here I placed these beautiful, organic chiles on this very silly plate.  It was interesting making the chiles pop from the surface of the paper.
First of all I used citrus oil thinner about mid way through the layering process, so that the real chiles are highly saturated.  Secondly, I tried to remain very conscience of  the values.  Values are always important, but when working on an overhead view correct values really help to add depth to the painting.
