Sarah Richardson - Combined Hand & Computer Rendering for Interior Design


I have been a big fan of Canadian Interior Designer/Decorator Sarah Richardson for ever.

Her work always inspires me.  I love her easy, casual style.  But don't let her casual approach fool you.  
In my opinion, Sarah's attention to detail is amazing!   

I found this room of hers that I really love.  The high, low quality in her design aesthetic really speaks to me.

I love how she pairs the Crystal Chandelier & Antique Gold Mirror with simple straight forward elements like that of the end tables and the floor rug.  

The rendering I did today is a combination of 3 parts hand rendering work, and a pinch of digital technology.  

I really love the way it turned out!  
Hope you enjoy.

Thursday Hand Rendering - Lady with a Red Hat

Today I am putting this one out there with a bit of hesitation.  I have been trying out some new techniques and not sure I have it yet.

I love just about everything in this room!

I also wish I knew who designed this lovely room.  But alas I do not.  
I decided to just go ahead and post anyway.  This one has taken me longer than usual.  I have actually restarted the whole rendering about 3 times.  Crazy?  Maybe, but not to get myself off the hook here, this room was particularly challenging for me.  Some of the surfaces were really difficult for me to put down.  

After the fourth try, I decided to just say what the heck.  There was actually something in each try that I would end up really loving, and other elements, not so much.  

Knowing when to stop is good in theory, but actually stopping takes a lot of self control.   Which admittedly I do not always have .

So here is where I stopped!!!!

I hope you enjoy it.
