I am appreciating the good work that my marker rendering students are doing at Florida State College at Jacksonville this summer. Most of the students have no back ground in marker rendering techniques and yet they are courageously taking the time to learn this skill.
At week #3, the students were assigned to render this floor plan unifying the image using color along with creating interest with a variety of different textures and patterns. Each hue or color needed to be repeated throughout the image. Here are five different interpretations of the assignment. Starting at the top, the rendering image was completed by Lindsey Carter, Jacqueline Liberio, Jennifer McCollister, Katey Pasco and Amanda Thornton.
It is fun to see the different styles and flavors that each student naturally bring to their work. They continue to develop this style during the semester. Teaching hand drawing and rendering has shown me that everyone expresses themselves visually with their own unique “hand” style. I think we are attracted to hand drawn images because of the distinctive expressive quality that each drawing shows.
