For the past week and next week or two, our project in our drawing class is on a specific building. My group is in charge of the Mossman Building. Here is my drawing assignment for the week: 12 thumbnail drawings of details of the Mossman Building.

For this project, we were each assigned a window in which we were supposed to fill it with two different light effects using cardboard and two other materials. My initial inspiration came from the clerestory windows we are studying in our History & Theory of Design class and stained glass windows, and the patterns they create. We were also told to consider our neighbors designs in our own designs. Nikki's window focused on how rain on windows effects light, so that's why I decided to place the items that represented the stained glass in a way that seemed fluid-like. I also decided to go from almost 2D to 3D to further emphasize the rain effect.
Here's my first time ever sketch up model. It's not completely accurate, but I'm still trying to figure out SketchUp and how exactly it works.

For this assignment, we were supposed to zoom in on accessories and begin to play with water color, and include some colored pencils as well. The bottom page was my first attempt with water color...and well, it didn't turn out as well as expected. However, with the earring...I really liked how it turned out, so I decided to play it up with a blue-green background to make it pop.
