My Final Project - Colouring is hard

August 15, 2013

On Monday I mentioned that I was almost finished the final project for the Intro. to drafting course I’ve been taking. I’m happy to report that I managed to finish it, and get it submitted on time – Yay me!

For the project we were given a condo plan, and we were supposed to draw a presentation drawing of both the living and dining rooms with furniture, do two wall elevations of each room, and then do an isometric drawing of one room. Not only did we have to draw the rooms, but we had to fill them with furniture, and draw the furnishings to scale. By Sunday evening after more than 12 hrs. of work I was pretty pleased with my drawings and on Monday I only had the colouring of the two floor plans to complete. I honestly don’t remember when the last time I coloured anything was, but I’m guessing it was about 15years ago, and unfortunately my colouring skills haven’t improved with a decade and half of being unused.

Despite my rusty artistic skills I was pretty proud of what I created. Well, I was until I got to class on Tuesday evening and saw some of the other student’s projects - some of them were really good, and a lot of them have obviously been using their colouring skills more regularly than I have.

Anyways, here is my final project:

What do you think? Please be kind as I won’t know my final grade for a few weeks.

PS - If you'd like to see what the furniture was that I was trying to draw, I created a Pinterest board to make it easier for me to find them when I needed dimensions. You can see the board here.
