The art of hand rendering in Interior Design

I am currently working on Unit7 of my course with the National Design Academy, and the topic is "soft furnishings". For one of our assignment, we have to design some window treatments for our virtual client (see this post for the design board for this project). So I think I have found a good design, and now all I have to do is actually design it, in other words: draw the elevation (that part is pretty easy) and most importantly, render it nicely. We can use any technique we want, from watercolour to markers. I might mix both actually. Although I've already done a few renderings, it makes me quite nervous.

I've been getting a lot of inspiration from professional work, and I've promised myself that one day, I'll be able to present such beautiful renderings to my clients (doesn't hurt to be a bit ambitious, does it ?). I haven't really started learning about Autocad or Sketchup yet (I have a course coming up in April), and I'm sure CAD is a great tool for any designer, but I really like hand rendering. It feels so much more personal, it's almost like telling a story to your client.

So until I'm able to show you my elevation, I wanted to show you a few killer Interior renderings. Fellow aspiring designers, feast your eyes !

The last one is mine. It was for a project I did back in France for a friend. Be indulgent, I'm just a beginner ... Have a great week-end !

    1. I know right ?! I reckon there will be plenty of trials and errors before we can draw like that !
