I’ve finally finished the pomegranate painting!
I struggled with choosing the colour of the background, but I think my final decision works quite well, especially with the purple at the corners. I feel like the dark at the corners draws your eye to the centre, which is exactly what I want.
I also varnished the painting, so it won’t get damaged. The varnish is a satin varnish so it’s not completely matte, which you can’t tell by this photo, but I’ll post more photos of this artwork soon. I just thought I’d better take photos in front of the pomegranate tree before it lost all of its leaves.
