Tesselations: A new pattern of hexagons, squares and triangles


Hexagons, square and triangles can make another more regular pattern, but this one works as well. The difference between this one and the other can be seen when you look at the hexagons. Yellow hexagons have a green square on each edge, while the green hexagons are surrounded by alternating triangles and squares.


I also made this small example using three colors, but the intricacy of the pattern make adding more colors a little problematic. I will return to this when I find a good color scheme with more than two colors.
