Avocado in Acrylic

Posted by | June 3, 2012 | 0 Comments

According to Wikipedia, The avocado is a tree native to Central Mexico, classified in the flowering plant family. Avocado or alligator pear also refers to the fruit (botanically a large berry that contains a single seed of the tree.

Alligator pear – The skin of avocado does look like alligator and the shape of avocado looks like a pear!

Anyhow, when I was painting this avocado in half,  I was kind of a little bit more relaxed than I usually am – I mixed the yellow and white,  and painted it on the canvas panel. I also used wet on wet technique in the fruit area. I like the way it turned out – it looks convincing. I think the shadow area needs to be improved but I will leave it for now.
