More Generalizations (Page 4)
Letís now consider aesthetics. An easy way of making the nature of the
design more obvious is to use different colors for different parts of
the figure. This corresponds to using different colored threads in a
conventional design. Here is the same design we saw earlier, with a few
simple changes. The background is now a pale red, and the squares and
their inscribed parabolas alternate colors. The lines themselves are
also slightly narrower:
Obviously, color offers many options for a diversity
of designs. I leave the task of exploring this to the reader.
We can also change the parabolas, as we did in
A Family of New Curve-stitch Designs.
We will examine this on the next page.
