Orange and Periwinkle


The colors, that is, not the fruit or the ground cover. I took this picture several years ago in Virginia. The bold bright line of the stick and the shadows, colors and curves in the leaves have been the basis for many patterns.



Here I’ve arranged it into a nine-sided pattern with six, four and five-sided motifs. I like the way the stick and its shadow provide a strong border, and the nine sides give a definite this-side-up quality to it. While the pattern has distinct concentric zones, the orange shadow helps tie them all together. Click the thumbnails below for detailed views.
