Color Change

For this perspective, I wanted to change some of the colors in the room while keeping others.  If a client comes to you and you have green walls in your drawing, but they don't like it, then you can very easily go in photoshop and change it to some other color that will please them.  I am not a big fan of the very bright blue walls, so I decided I would try red with a blue ceiling.  I used the lasso tool to select the walls and then used the paint bucket to fill in the space with the red color I chose.  I also dulled down my shadows with the dodge tool again.  By changing the color of the walls, it really does give the room a different feel.


In perspective everything has a smeared look almost.  I made some of the lines, and the shadows especially, very soft.  I used both the dodge and burn tool as well as the stamp tool for the floor.  The effects I have done to my perspective makes it have a very relaxed feeling.


In this perspective I chose to make it glow.  I made the lines more bold, added lines on the windows so they were not just black and then made my shadows lighter with the dodge tool.  I like it because it really shows an emphasis on color instead of structure.

Rendered in 3 styles

We had to draw one view from our sketchup design and draw them in three different styles and papers, but with the same color scheme from one of Maud Gatewood's paintings.  The painting I chose is at the bottom.

Here is my best one of the three.  It is the tightest one and is done on marker paper.

Here is my middle one and is done on vellum.

    Here is my loosest one and is done on tracing paper.  I need to work on my scale figures and the loosness of the lines and make them more bold and thick.

Martha's Vineyard renovation house [Edgartown, MV]

Here are some pictures that I took when I toured this house in Martha's Vineyard when I was there on vacation.  The house is located in Edgartown, MV and was a habitat for humanity house.  Every room and section of the outdoor landscaping was done by a different designer!  I really enjoyed touring this house and thought I would share some of the pictures I took.

Room Perspecitves

First we took a picture from a magazine of a room and used it for inspiration to create our own room.  I took the furniture from my magazine cut-out and put in my room.  I wanted the outdoors to come in, so there is outdoor furniture and lots of windows with wooden beams on the ceiling and the walls.  Media: pencil.

Then from the above perspective, we made a floor plan and decided how the other side of the room looked.
Then from the plan we made a perspective of the other side of the room and used black pens to show different light weights.

In drawing we have a contest every week called "So you think you can draw..."  This week we had to draw a joint and show how its connection.  I came up with drawing logs with a pin down the middle to show how it connected and what area I am focusing on.
