Turkish Pomegranate Painting – acrylic on canvas

Still focussing on the Turkish patterns at the moment.  Pomegranates are a common theme in Turkish homes in everything from fabrics, paintings and actual ceramic and plastic pomegranates as table decorations. This was done on a small 15cm x 15cm canvas with acrylics and metallics. I do use metallic paint a lot in my paintings, not sure if its cheating but I really love how it makes patterns stronger and colours stand out.

I did this sketch first but decided given the size of the canvas I was using, I would just do a close up of a single pomegranate. I still have lots of tiny canvases so might do a series of three small ones next.
