Avocado Halves

When painting an avocado from life, you really have to work fast or those lovely bright yellows start to fade more toward yellow ocher, and worse. Rubbing lemon juice on the avocado will stop that from happening, but for once, I didn't have any lemons around. Which is probably why this avocado got painted in the first place! Go figure.
