There were no preliminary musings on paper for this one, just compose straight onto the canvas. I grew up with baboons stealing our avocados and saw monkey oranges for the first time in Umhlanga Rocks, where vervet moneys seems to love them, and I liked the change in colour from deep green to a yellowy orange when ripe. So this is a combined recollection of our cousins having a feed.
