Shape Project...Now in COLOR!

In my color theory class we were assigned to add color to our shape project from last semester. We first had to recreate our original on the computer, using all the correct values. In the end we had six different representations of our shape project:

Gray Scale (recreation of original)
Cool color scheme with one warm color cooled down
Warm color scheme with one cool color warmed
Two color schemes from fabric samples
One color scheme from a painting

Now it's my second semester in the interior design program....This means now I'm learning hand drafting and detailing. It is a lot of work and quite time consuming, but I'm loving it so far. I took a drafting class in high school and that was one the main things that inspired me to go into interior design. I love being able to analyze and draw how different thing's fit together, and being able to create my own workable designs (not that I've really been able to do that this semester yet). Once I have some more impressive and complete drafts then I'll totally post them.

Egyptian Style office

In this project I made my very first finishes board. I was given the theme of an egyptian style office and had to use a pretty ridiculous egyptian throne chair, and a little tile. Here is how it turned out.

Shape Project

The concept of the shape project was to take a photograph showing clear dimension, and create a composition by flattening out and abstracting the original shapes. The photograph used for the shape project was the same photograph used for the below mentioned line project. This shows the amazing difference between the use of the element of line, and the element of shape, using the same inspiration. 


Line Project

The purpose of the line project was to add dimension through the element of line, and to understand the feelings conveyed by different line type.  In this project a black pen was used to transform an original photograph with shapes and forms, into a composition composed completely of lines.

This assignment was focused on learning perspective by adding dimension to a cube through simple three-dimensional shapes. So far the presentation class has done several similar assignments to better understand how to visually present ideas through drawing and sketching.
