Get your lovely Mango's - PPF

After a few weeks of creating black ink drawings, I needed a blast of colour for this weeks link to Paint Party Friday. 
So when I came across Tracey Fletcher King's latest video illustrating her technique for painting a mango, I was thrilled because it's no secret that I'm a huge fan, but also that I had a mango to hand. 
 Perfect...
As you can see it's rather dark for painting, but what can you do during winter in Bonnie Scotland. You have to work with what you're given. 
With desk lamp and overhead lights switched on I dubiously started.
For those of you that like to know details of what supplies were used, then here they are...
I used the Kohi-I-Noor watercolour paints as shown in the above photo on Daler Rowney 300g/m2 
Aquafine paper, outlining with uni-ball eye waterproof black pen and white corrective pen.
I like the texture of the paper which gives the effect for the mango skin,
And here's the finished mango. 
It was such fun to paint and gave me my colour fix.
