Courtyard Makeover

This is how it looked the first time I saw it. With almost no direction (which works pretty well for me), I was asked to design a makeover for this courtyard.

So, faced with a blank slate that was crying out for *something*, here’s what I came up with. Please keep in mind that I hadn’t done a perspective drawing in a few years. (it’s not perfect, to say the least…)

The client loved the design and gave the go-ahead. Yipee! Now, usually the finished product varies from the conceptual drawing ┬áin varying degrees. Either the client requests changes mid-stream, I suggest a change because reality didn’t allow for something on paper, or any of several other possible reasons. But this time, the results matched the design with uncanny preciseness.

See?

With the exception of the Wisteria not yet covering the arbor, this is definitely a plan that came together well!
