The Fine Art of Architectural Rendering Evocative watercolor images of grand structures and spaces as yet unbuilt with romantic lighting and entourage have long been the province of the architectural illustrator. Computer technology has become an important tool for all who bring architectural visions accurately to life and I use it extensively; yet the need for exciting and focusing the viewers eye upon those elements which have been selected as most significant, requires something more. My 45 years as an illustrator has endowed me with important drawing and compositional skills which are frequently missing in renderings. My background as both an illustrator of precision and a fine artist, brings unique qualities to the finished product. Approaching today's planning and community groups with your vision requires us to: describe the proposal accurately and without deception, while softening the presentation and capturing it's full potential.
