8″ x 11″ Marker on Paper

As part of the Interior Design program, we took classes on color theory and rendering by hand. We didn’t have fancy computer programs that did the work for us and I’m glad for it!  Rendering allows you to convey your ideas to clients in a visual manner by making presentations appear realistic and three-dimensional. For example, when looking at your presentation, a client should be able to tell what colors and materials, e.g. wood, stone, cloth, leather, metal, etc. are being used.

For this assignment, we had to recreate the missing half of a photograph. On the right-hand side is the photo and on the left is my rendering.
