30-Day-Painting Challenge - Day 5

I noticed that many artists paint avocados. I wanted to do it myself in order to find out what was so special about them. Well, I knew that they tasted good and were good for you..

I learned from a fellow artist that a cut avocado is more interesting to paint, and that lemon juice will prevent its darkening. I did it and have to say that I enjoyed painting it. First, its colors - different greens, yellows, oranges, and, second, the value contrast of avocado's skin, flesh and kernel. I'm quite taken by it I think..
