Pattern and Texture: Jocelyn Urias Castro


This is an image of a pillow that I have in my living room that I took when I was home

A pattern is made by repetition of objects or figures made by points and/or lines, creating a completely new “pattern” illusion. There can be hard to identify a pater in some images or objects sometimes, but when you let fly your imagination you can find a lot of initial objects from where this “pattern” was made of. There are curved lines in the withe and green pillow that go all around, making it hard to find the repeated object. From some perspectives I can se a bunch of number 5s in color white that were changed in different positions, like the mirror technique, that even can form a horizontal line of number 5s. If the image would be up side down, we could appreciate the same thing.



I took this image of some bricks from the inside of the house.

We can identify a texture by just looking at some picture online and see the appearance of the surface or by physically being touching it and feel the different “textures” it has. We can almost even feel it by just looking at it, because our brain automatically sends that feeling to our minds and it’s like we are touching it. A texture is composed of different lines, points, and planes all around. It has some depth on it and it could have some patterns too. In the left image, we can see a wall made of bricks, that are formed by lines in horizontal and vertical ways. We can even see a little part of the carpet too that seems a little softer than the bricks but this one has some points on it. The repeated rectangles create a pattern form too.


I took this is a picture of a city painting that was at my house

Point, Line, and Plane can be found everywhere. Everything that surrounds us are made by this factors. The left image is a painting from a city that shows a bridge in the closest and the city on the background. I can represent this image with mostly lanes, there are everywhere, is the whole part of the bridge and what forms the buildings on the back far side of the image. I can also see a lot of texture on it, the bricks on the bridge make it look gritty. The shape of the lines gives an idea of the angle where the picture was taken. As you can see, the lines get together one to each other as it goes further. We can almost thing that the thick line on the far is basically just “one line” but actually is made by tinny little lines comprised together. The angle shows if someone driving past the bridge took the picture.
