A mom and Joey montage!! They're the best. The boy is in a serious book phase. He would have us read to him all day if he could. This seems like a good thing.

These multi-photo posts are more my speed. Here is a quick step by step of the #BassHall #elevation #rendering . It started with some fine drafting (mostly by Andrew Packey), then to testing and mixing colors (credit entirely to Jeffrey Loman), drafting and painting test swatches, airbrushing color by color, then hand painting, pen, colored pencil, chalk, other touchups, and voila! This has been a sweet opportunity, thanks #dmsas ! Oh btw, #nofilter haha

A Saturday morning walk with the boy while mom went out to get a haircut. We stopped by this abandoned gem of an entryway, saw 100 squirrels and birds, and then took a nap. #architecture #hyattsvillemd #history #abandoned #abandonedplaces #dadlife
This series on the #BassHall #floorplan has made me realize I'm not good at social media. Very sorry for the gap in posts! I've been busy with other things, including a trip to Notre Dame and Chicago, an essay on sustainability, the Bass Hall elevation rendering,  volunteering with my local scout troop, Michelle's birthday, Joey learning how to walk, and some beautiful weather!

Anyway, the next steps shown here were to even out and add some colors with #prismacolor pencils and hit the lineweights, especially the cut lines, again. The final product is next!

I wrapped up the week constructing shadows while Jeffrey followed with #watercolor. It never ceases to amaze me how a #rendering comes to life at this point. #dmsas #architecture #riba #traditional #handmade #basshall #ftworthtx
This past week we've moved into the more manual parts of the rendering. Jeffrey does the watercolor while I follow along with #micron pens and #prismacolor pencil to make each of the 900+ seats in the concert hall crisp and uniform. He's also been doing some grading to make the raking floor read. Things are starting to come to life! #dmsas #architecture #rendering #handmade #riba #ftworthtx #basshall #opera #concert #watercolor #traditional #beauty #beauxarts
Inch by inch... Since I have so far neglected to explain what I'm doing: my firm, David M. Schwarz Architects was commissioned to produce a hand-rendered set of drawings of the Bass Performance Hall in Ft. Worth, TX, a project the firm designed in the '90s. This will be displayed by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). I was tasked with the researching the old drawings and hand drafting an orchestra level floor plan. Now, under the direction of Jeffrey Loman, an associate at the firm and our primary renderer, I am going through phases of masking and airbrushing with watercolor paint to get the base colors down. Once this is done, I'll assist Jeffrey with casting shadows, brushwork on the smaller washes, texturing, and revisiting the line work to really make things pop. Stay tuned! (Also pictured is a fellow Domer, Andrew Packey, who helped out with some masking.)
