This composition I chose to do all straight and square like the tile floor.
I took the purple from the chair for the border because with the red being
in both colored pictures and because they are analogous colors.

Photoshop Decisions

This one I changed the floor tile and color on the walls and on the 
fireplace.  I also used the burn tool on the couch.

On this one I wanted to change the fireplace stones to tan colors.  
And I worked of the colors of the fireplace.

This one I left the walls red, but made them brighter.  I changed the floor
tile to gray and the kitchen table I made black.

Another Perspective of the Space

For this perspective I chose to do it more precise and have straight lines.  
I tried to show the light and shadow as best I could on the walls, floor, 
and on the furniture.  Instead of just putting scale figures into the perspective 
like I usually do, I also tried to create a space for them and show entourage 
and have them actually living in the room.

Rendering Perspectives

For this assignment we were to pick a painting by Maud Gatewood and take 
four colors from that painting and apply them to our room perspectives. 

The perspective above is a style that is more lose with the lines and focuses more
 on light and shadow.  The shadowing that I did in this is more dark and sketchy.

This perspective is still loose but has a little more structure to how they are put 
on the page.  These colors are very bright and bold and I don't think they 
worked as well as the above one.

This perspective has more tighter lines and the light and shadow is focused 
on more than just darker or black spaces, I think I showed it well on the floor.  
These colors are a better choice and I also think that the checkered tile floor
 gives it a different feel then the other two that are solid.

Inspiring Room

For this project we were to choose an inspiring room.  I chose the image above.  

From that room we were to then create a new room based on the perspective from the inspiring room.  We were giving guidelines for what to place in the room, such as table, 6 chairs, couch, chair, and coffee table.  Also which wall the door was to be placed on and how many windows.  We were to also place a skylight in the SW corner.

Then we were to draft the floor plan showing the space we created in the first perspective and to also add a study space to the other side including a desk, chair, shelving, and lighting.  I wanted the study to be in a separate room from the living room and dining room so that you wouldn't have been distracted by others.  The other half on the lower part of the plan is the kitchen.  The french doors lead out to a patio.

Then we were to show the perspective of the other half of the room you designed in the floor plan.

So You Think You Can Draw

This drawing I did is of a joint.  It represents a joint by 
the hands touching and there placed together.  Also
in marriage it is the joining of two becoming one and 
they are now joined together.
