Right now, I can’t find anything more interesting than the bowl of fruit on our dining table. Being in a tropical country, fruits like these are available in our marketplace. Whenever you buy fruits in our market, you gotta know how to bargain and to choose the sweet ones from the sour ones. It’s a little tricky in buying fruits here. Sometimes the good looking ones are sour and the ugly ones are sweet. In a little bit of color difference or scent or how the fruit feels in your hand, you can tell the difference. (Only if somebody teaches you how, and I’m no expert at that. lol) To be safe, you can ask the vendor to let you taste a piece or a slice. Don’t overdo this though.
Mango (or Mangga in our native tongue)by the way is the Philippine’s national fruit. As I searched the net, I am quite surprised that it is also the national fruit of Pakistan and India (check it out). I thought national fruits aren’t meant to be repeated. Oh well, that just shows how popular the mango is!
Normally, you can see flawless looking and sweet mangoes in hotel rooms. No spots, no bruise, just plain and yellow. I just thought that it is a little boring to draw. Our country exports most of those flawless and spotless mangoes to other country while we get to enjoy the remains – spotted, colorful and sometimes odd-looking mangoes. But it doesn’t matter because the taste matters more than the skin of the fruit.
In here we got three kinds of mangoes. We got green mangoes, yellow mangoes, and apple mangoes. The mangoes I drew today are yellow mangoes, the sweet kind. That orange is also a local one. It is a bit smaller than the oranges you might see, but it is sweet too. 😀
So, that’s my art for today. Hope you enjoyed it. Have a great day!
