Renderings Revised

The first perspective was done on Tuesday in class, and with it I basically followed Shawn's examples. I used the burn and dodge tools, changed the pillow and shirt colors, and clone stamped. For this 2nd perspective I wanted to completely change the feel of the room. I used the burn and dodge tools to highlight the areas in which light hit and to darken the areas which were shadowed. I changed the couch color from gray to black, the walls from burgundy to black, lightened the floors and staircase, darkened the tables and rug and also the fire place. For the last perspective I chose to keep the wall color the same while brightening up the space with blue sofas. I also changed the wood on the stairs and floor and I used burn and dodge once again.

Final Rendering-SketchUp space

This assignment was fun and interesting. I actually chose to pick another Maud Gatewood painting for my color scheme and it worked better.

These renderings were actually inspired from colors within a Maud Gatewood painting of our choice. This was an interesting exercise and color study because it forced me to use colors that are "out-of-the-box" for me. I enjoyed taking chances with color in this exercise.


I enjoyed creating this space and I am appreciative of the privilege to have been able to design my own personal space. The focal point I would have to say is the staircase which leads up to the 140 sq ft loft area.
