This tessellation tutorial starts with an equilateral triangle.
The triangle is split into three kite-shaped pieces, and goes on to create a tessellation with rotational symmetry. In the Heesch description system, the result is called a C3C3C6C6 tessellation.
For tools, nothing more special than a single piece of tracing paper is needed. You'll also need a regular piece of drawing paper, a pencil, at least three differently-colored pencils, a medium-wide black magic marker, and three 5"/14cm thin strips of paper.
Enjoy...and post your tessellation both here at dA and at my tessellation website's guest gallery. Link: www.tessellations.org
