Hello, Im going to be talking about my art unit 2 motif/pattern.
I like my pattern, and one of the things i’m most proud of is my cultural influence, or my ancient Egyptian motif. I really think that it’s a beautiful motif, and creates a nice interlocking pattern because it is in the top right and left and bottom right and left. I think I did well with my personal interest, as it shows my past in a small image that I think fits well with the rest of the motif. While I really do like the cultural influence, i’m not sure if I like that the circles dont interlock, as i’m not sure they will look perfect when put together, i maybe should have used some tool that could recreate the circle halves exactly, This was really hard to do as when I was drawing it was almost impossible to transfer the same exact circle half to the other side, even though I measured and used a ruler. I like my personal interest, but if I had to improve it i might make the trees all the same size, as that may look nicer, I maybe should’ve made it more centralized and symmetrical, to make the entire thing look more balanced.
I think my pattern interlocks quite well, the circles may not be perfect but they still interlock, and my pattern interlocks nicely on the sides. In my pattern, interlocking definitely creates new shapes, taking the four corners of the shape makes the ancient Egyptian pattern, and taking both sides makes the key-like pattern. I chose dark blue and the turquoise because they fit well with nature, turquoise for the ground and water mixed and blue for water, and both of those are a large part of the Finnish lifestyle, and therefore, a large part of my identity. I do think I have color unity, as I made the colors repeat and work together and I like how it looks.
