I've always wanted to try an eggplant. I bought one once (a really cool one), but then proceeded to paint something else, and I forgot about it. I left it in it's bag and it went bad.... so disappointing... Well, these are mini eggplants and habeneros, and I can't remember what the little red one is... maybe sorreno? does that sound right? I loved the multiple colors in this one...and I love orange and purple together.
A Little note on color:
I remember reading somewhere, when I was teaching, that to DARKEN a color, go to the next darker color on the color wheel, instead of adding a darker neutral or gray (Payne's Grey)... I guess they also said to LIGHTEN one you would go to the next lighter one on the wheel. It really seems to work. I used that to get the darks on the peppers here. So, to darken the orange I put in red-orange and to lighten it I put in yellow-orange, etc.
