Avocados in Watercolor

January's theme for my drawing is fruits and veggies, very doable, so I put it first. I've finished my daily painting, and this was a fun quick study for the themed work. I bought Rober Wade's DVD, Wade's Watercolor Solutions, and in it he shows how to do dry brush work (it's a wonderful DVD, by the by) so used that technique here. I think it works on the center and left avocados, while the right one (maybe a drawing problem?) looks more like a mini-watermelon. Oh, well, two out of three isn't bad, and I am happy with the shadows. Done on 140 lb. coldpress Arhes paper. Thanks for looking. Keep sketching, everyone.

Hey Aunt Nel!
Your work looks great! Thanks for sharing your talents with us all. I could probably eat a couple of those avacados right now. Maybe with a little salt and lemon juice??? Yum. Love you,

They look fantastic, Nel! Rich colors -- and a bit painterly -- my favorite look!
