Organic pattern:

I chose this pattern as an example for an organic pattern because, while the pattern repeats seamlessly, there are no regular lines, shapes, or continuous design elements aside from the subject. No two parts of the design are the same, aside from the fact that it is made up of illustrations of pineapples. I believe that the pattern is built to be repetitive, because if you look at the edges of the image, you can see that each pineapple that has been cut can be completed by the corresponding section of the pineapple on the opposite side of the composition, so if you folded the pattern it would look like a whole object. I believe that this pattern follows a “dot” architecture. The pattern is overall light in color value, composed largely of white, yellow, and green. The few dark colors present in the pattern serve as a contrasting element to more prominently show the lightness of the overall pattern. The colors are all located close to each other on the color spectrum, as yellow acts as the base color in yellow, orange, and green, the main colors in the composition. The colors are similar enough where they all go together, but different enough with the undertones of green and orange where they have a nice, soft contrast.

Geometric Pattern:

This pattern is clearly geometric, as it is composed of clean, repeating lines, and can be repeated seamlessly from any point to be a continuous pattern. Each element of the pattern is identical within its shape. I would call this composition a grid, as all of the elements are interwoven rather than created in rows/stripes, and are not individual like dots. The color scheme, black and white, is the ultimate contrasting combination of colors. Each color  is equally pronounced, as they are the lightest and darkest, most saturated and most devoid of color, contrasting color combination possible. They are also the lightest and darkest values possible. The design does not have a lot of dimension, and is largely a flat-looking composition.
