In this paper we investigate spline wavelets on general triangulations. In particular, we are interested in C 1 wavelets generated from piecewise quadratic polynomials. By using the Powell-Sabin elements, we set up a nested family of spaces of C 1 quadratic splines, which are suitable for multiresolution analysis of Besov spaces. Consequently, we construct C 1 wavelet bases on general triangulations and give explicit expressions for the wavelets on the three-direction mesh. A general theory is
