I am a creator. My passion is a mixture of interior design, architecture and art. But no one feels “creative” ALL the time. On days when things are feeling a little stale, I bring out my favorite markers and hand render whats inspiring me. Then I go for a run. There’s nothing like a good run to get my creative juices flowing. And when they start flowing again, ideas fly into my head and I can’t write them down fast enough. - Still working hard to get my hand rendering style down, one that I’m happy with. It’s crazy how something so simple is so hard ☹️. I know how I want it but I just can’t nail it, not yet anyways.. - What do you do when you need a creative lift?
It’s the weekend and I’ve got plans. Like a bunch of reading, relaxing, catching up on trainings, and creating an outline for an online drawing/sketching/rendering course for you wonderful people to learn from. - What you got kickin’ this weekend?
#tb when I used a compter for architectural illustrations. Those days are long gone! I ended up changing the paint color but I hand rendered the next two exterior elevations and she loved them. She actually loved them so much she bought the hand rendered ones from me BEFORE I could make a copy of them and encouraged me to pursue this art more (hence, where I am now). I thank that sweet little lady everyday for her suggestion! - The point is, the client responded to the hand drawn renderings better than the computer ones. Oh and my presentation board was on point too 😜.
This kitchen designed by @kevintwittyinteriors is my favorite so far. Watch my stories to see it all come to life. - What are you doing Labor Day weekend? I’m will be rendering. Don’t forgot you can grab my freebie OR my guide up there 👆🏻 and render with me!
White on white on white 😝. It may seem difficult to hand render but actually it’s pretty simple. Use cool gray marker colors and leave the paper white in the areas you need the color white (don’t fill it in). I always leave a lot of white space open when I render an illustration. If there is to much white space I can always fill it in but I can’t add it back. - Practice it. Leave white space. You will be glad you did!
