Alhambra III, Painted Patterns

Happy Wednesday! 

As promised here is a whole post about the beautiful painted geometric patterns of Alhambra following the Alhambra I, Structure and the Alhambra II, Carved Patterns.

There are so many gorgeous pattern in Alhambra and it is said that there are 17 types of those wall-paper/flat patterns. What is special about those patterns is the elements that unite them such as repetition, reflection and transformation (Stewart,2014). Each pattern holds different meanings and techniques. There are many resources out there explaining them further. I will discuss a few in coming posts. For now, enjoy these photos! :) 

The order of these photos starts from what I saw first.
