It was way too complex, so I cut it down to the section I found most appealing for a drawing.
I decided to work in colored pencil, which I haven't used it ages.
I have a 120-pencil Faber-Castell set of pencils, and used nearly every red, yellow, and orange one.
And a few greens and browns as well.
For the shadows, I did use black, which I rarely use in any drawing or painting because it tends to deaden things, and to keep it more lively, I shaded over it with either dark red or dark green.
It took a bit of experimentation to find the right combination of orangish-reds for some of the peppers, and more blueish-reds for others.
The cardboard box divider was the easiest bit to color in -- just a few shades of tan/brown. All in all, it was fun though time-consuming. I did a couple of veggies each day over 4-5 days.
