Pattern Research

When deciding which natural pattern I planned to use for my outline, I wanted to choose two very different references. I thought the concentric circles of the frog’s eye had interesting contrast with the pointy design in the eye.
The rock pillars were my second choice for the pattern project because the horizontal movement of the rock layers intuitively contradicts its column form. I appreciate the variety of lines, both actual and implied within this form. My design was inspired by the the horizontal motion the layered earth suggests.
