Standing back and reviewing my canvas, I thought that the blue in the top left corner was too strong, so I knocked it back with a creamy white and my favourite transparent green - terre verte hue. The transparent quality of the green allowed shades of blue to show through and gave me the blended hues I wanted. One of the trustees wanted some water spilling from the jars, so I suggested this with touches of light ultramarine blue and white dry brushed over the texture of the tissue paper. I added some Japanese paper with patterned holes over part of the pomegranate and the scattered seeds. I chose this because I think it adds texture and the pattern resembles the shape of the seeds.
