Some big medallions in this one. How about that? I think it makes for a static doodle.
Perhaps it is the even spacing or because there is one in each quarter of the doodle. There is no natural movement in it. You have to move your eye from medallion to medallion as if they are separate from the background. I think that is the problem I have with this doodle, the large medallions are floating on top of the background, breaking the pattern instead of being part of it.
Given my interest is in overall patterning, I would call this a failure. Kind of pretty in its way, but not what I am after. I don't often post mistakes, but I like individual elements of it. What do you think?
