It was fun to challenge myself to draw a series of window treatments. As I am gaining more confidence in my drawing skills, I like working with subjects that are more complicated. The first step was to measure a window to get the dimensions for knowing the proportions and location of the molding lines. With a light pencil and a straight edge, the drawing was started with the large rectangular shape. This was divided to show the window panes and side molding lines. With an ink pen, the final drawing was done free hand.
Photographs of different window treatment styles were studied to better understand how the window treatment shapes and proportions fit with the window. I first did a pencil sketch of the window treatment design. When I was satisfied with the sketch, I would redraw the treatment free hand using an ink pen and erased the extra pencil lines. Pictures of fabric patterns were also used as a reference for rendering the different patterns.
