Summary

In an age of reliance on CAD programs, the skill to express a vision with a hand-rendered drawing gives an interior designer a distinct advantage in communicating with clients. Interior Design Illustrated helps students develop this powerful marketing tool. The step-by-step approach, with simple, uncomplicated lessons that progress from beginner to intermediate skill levels, teaches students how to visualize interior space and perspective and details such as pattern and texture and to render their vision with watercolor and markers. Because the lessons are structured around small tasks, students will become proficient with one rendering skill before moving on to another. The text and numerous illustrations reinforce each other to make the lessons easily accessible to visual learners. The comprehensive coverage includes instruction in rendering architecture, finishes, fixtures, furniture, accessories, and plantscaping. Features -- Examples by leading illustrators depict a wide range of styles -- Each chapter concludes with a practice assignment related to the lesson -- A tracing file of line drawings provides samples of architectural details, furniture selections, plants, people, and other enhancements -- Tips for mastering skills
