architecture renderings

Two-dimensional drawings and sketches, like the one above, are another good way for an architect to help clients visualize design concepts and spatial relationships.
These architectural renderings are primarily done with ink or pencil and may incorporate the use of color in the form of paint, pencils, or markers.
Renderings can be quick sketches to quickly relay a concept, or more formal finish renderings which are generally used to sell a completed comprehensive concept to a client.

"For a formal, finish rendering, I often start working with rough sketches on "onion skin" working quickly and using overlays to make needed adjustments along the way.
Once I have the information in the form I want, I can copy the concept to a more formal final presentation."
