Sectional Analysis of Peppers

I was thinking about how it would be interesting to do prints of architecture (linoleum or wood block) weather in axonometric, orthographic, or perspective view to make reproduction of sections easier. For example, it would be easier to have an axonometric, exploded axonometric, and diagramic exploded axonometric if the reproduction was done carefully in layers. I also have been thinking about doing an architectural analysis of fruit. I love peppers. They are a reoccurring subject in my art. The following image is the sectional analysis of peppers. Succeeding are photos of the pepper. pepper analysisPeppers view 1interior shot

    Good project. I believe that Doug Cooper used to have 1st year students draw Bell peppers. Does he still? I remember seeing pepper exteriors in charcoal, with a “net” of lines thrown over them. But in studio they may also have drawn peppers as part of a long-standing project in 48-100 to take a plant “specimen” and draw it in contour, section, etc., a bit like you guys used a tool, though it was always the first project of the semester.

    We did not draw bell peppers 1st year. However, I drew many green bell peppers at Parson’s Pre-College Architecture program. Contoured drawings and charcoal drawings. Peppers are definitely one of the more architectural fruits. It’s also fun to make wax molds of their interiors.

    aren’t peppers vegetables?

    by definition, fruits have seeds.

    Plus, Wikipedia says they’re a fruit.

    therefore… it must be a fruit.

    The particular shots of the interiors with the paper towel as a floor plane feels like its a snapshot of a modeled space. I wonder how it would look with scale figures populating the ground plane.
    And Wikipedia is never wrong.
