Assignment: Expressing pattern as a design
1. Create a realistic drawing
2. Explore your subject in three dimensions
3. Create a detail
4. Stylize the form
Pattern-> the form of an object is a diagram of forces
When thinking of how to incorporate forces of nature into patterns, I usually like to incorporate myself into my art piece. My pattern idea came based upon my love for swimming in water, so water was the subject. With that I asked myself, how can I draw water in a simple yet representational form. I looked back to the way I swim in a pool. my arms going back and forth in the water creating these smooth transitions to keep me up in the water. Thus with this in mind I tried drawing with that same motion. It then created the flowing-like patterns from lines that represented water.
