Fri. 4/10/15: Weekly Drawing 12

For this week’s drawing we had to draw two perspective views of our pavilion projects we’re doing in design studio. The CD-ED will use the pavilion to reach out to people experiencing homelessness and to find out about their housing needs. Below are two views of the inside of my pavilion–one without furniture and one with.

Tues. 4/7/15: Entenza Floor Plan

On Tuesday we had to turn in a floor plan of the Entenza House, designed by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen. We were given a floor plan to go by, but we had to do some interpretation of how some of the built-in furniture would look in plan. Below is a floor plan for the Entenza Case Study House. I shaded the walls on the back of the vellum, and I do not like the results because it looks messy. Of course, I’m sure there is a way to do it that looks better than what I did here.


Tues. 3/31/15: One-Point Perspective, Color Rendering

For today’s assignment, we used our one-point perspectives from before and rendered them in color. Below is my color rendering. Today I discovered that you can use markers on the back of vellum to add extra intensity without covering up the details of your drawing. For instance, in my perspective below, I needed to deepen the shadows in my bookshelves, but I didn’t want to cover up the objects in the bookshelves, so I added pigment to the back of the vellum.
