Avocado Seller Myanmar

This is an oil painting from a photo I took in Myanmar of a local woman selling avocados.  Note that the light yellow line on the nose and right side of the face is not a highlight, but thanaka cream that is used for sun protection and as make-up.

Locals rub the bark of a tree on round stones and add water to make this paste for use by men, women and children.
