It will be another night with guacamole before dinner; I am finding that I love painting avocados.
This one was especially fun because I kept rearranging the set up and trying various shadow angles. 
When I started the painting I was surprised at how quickly it came together. If you love avocado as much as I do, I highly recommend painting them. I did put a little lime juice on them first so they would not turn brown, and that seemed to help.
The colors in this are not accurately represented by this photo. I will need to take another photo and see if I can get it closer to reality. I tried adjusting it in iphoto, but could not correct it. 
The blue around the towel is much grayer and not leaning toward purple.

  1. Avocados are great subjects...even their bumpy skins. You did a great job on this!
