Want to learn how to use Copic Markers? This summer I am developing an online Copic marker rendering class series It will be focused on using markers to color or render flowers from the garden. The class will include the line drawings for each activity along with step-by-step video demonstrations. Student will be able to submit their assignments for feedback with comments and suggestions for improvements. The goal is to have this up and running by September 2015. Check out this practice demonstration video that I did using a Black-Eyed Susan flower line drawing. Stay tuned for more updates.

The addition of surface rendering to floor plans provides an opportunity to show the pattern and texture of the building elements and furnishings. In this quick sketched rendered floor plan of a bedroom, it has a stippling pattern representing the texture of the carpet. There are lines and dots for wood grain and horizontal squiggled lines representing the fabric on the bed. Notice around the floor plan, I doodled around drawing different table tops, plants and flooring finishes.
Check out this six minute video where I talk about these texture and patterns.
