Pattern Play

Pattern Play - student project

 

I analyzed a design by Eloise Renouf, then made a design that has a similar shape as a foundation.

These are some designs I made using an oval shape in various colors and sizes,  with patterns laid on top of the ovals.

I experimented with composition, adding and deleting elements and came up with three designs that I liked.

 

"Carnival Lights"

"Birds Flying Over Trees, Lakes, and Fields"

The class was very educational! I liked the strategies for making sure that you don't have a focal point, like avoiding high color contrast.
