Another design with ten-fold rotational symmetry from waves

Rosette with ten-fold rotational symmetry. The colored dots show the waves used for creating the drawing below.

For ten-fold rotational symmetry it is quite natural to begin with ten rhombs and angles of 36 degrees. This gives a larger rosette of rhombs than in the post before. The quasiperiodic design I get  depends strongly on the choice of the wave for the dominating green color component. For a slowly varying wave of low-frequency I get large motifs. Here they were too large for my taste. Thus I used a higher frequency for green.

Using the colors shown in the figure at the left I get:

Although I am using the same symmetry as for the second figure in the previous post the result is quite different. Looking more closely, we can discover many common features.
