Another rendering project left my desk today – a wonderful SieMatic Beaux Arts kitchen designed by a close colleague. The design was complete with plan, elevations and material list and I was asked only to come up with two views that showed the entire space as completely as possible. The main kitchen has two small “closets” off to each side which lead to a pantry/serving area through pocket doors. The designers inserted a built-in Miele coffee maker and Miele speed oven into the closets, opposite with shelves. You can see the small closets in each rendering. I love how the toekicks and crown moldings project out into the openings and “square-off” each composition.
Alternate view, showing the window wall. I like the angle/dynamics of this shot.
The big eating surface is Silestone Merope. Note how I show the reflections on the dark, glossy surface. Reflections are one of the key areas in producing realism with marker renderings. I have many other tricks to executing quick interior renderings; one day I should write a big tutorial to document it all before my ways become extinct in this age of computer design and illustration.
