This little watercolor ( 7" x 9") was painted on 90lb. Fabriano Traditional White cold press paper. It is one of my favorite papers as it has a softer surface than others. I really wanted to paint a pomegranate in watercolor since the piano teacher I take my granddaughters to has a pomegranate tree in his backyard and he has graciously given them fruit from this tree.
