By The Spoon Full
Avocados are awesome! They're great to eat, AND fun to paint. One thing I notice (and like) about using fresh fruit and vegetables for my daily paintings is that I'm certainly eating well!
Trying to mix the colors for the avocado was actually easier than I thought. I was tempted to just pull out my Sap Green, but didn't. And the "red-ish peach" background color was actually supposed to be orange. But when I started mixing my colors, I stopped when this one started to appear. I thought it made a pretty good background color for the greens of the avocado, the white plate, and the reflections on the spoon.
