From Gradient to Pattern

 

Started to experiment with simple gradients over different directions.
It looked like a powerful vibrant piece by the end and I wanted to see what else I could get out of it.

The angles led to me to flip it and flip it and flip it again, producing a nice little pattern, not unlike the upholstery on school buses back in the day.

Interesting to see the contrast in visual experience between an object and a repeated pattern of the same object.

The symmetry and geometry of a shape really helps in its repeatability (is that a word?), which helps in a quick and easy experiment like this. There’s a bit more risk in organic shapes but for continuous solid patterns, maths won’t let you down.
