Using Photoshop to Change Architectural Layouts

Another rough sketch to pick views for new work on Rincon del Rio !  The two sketches below show how I use Photoshop to change elements of a drawing to get approval–and get it just the way the client wants it!  Foreground is flat and level in the lower drawing, whereas the upper drawing shows a perspective to the foreground porch…. This 3-D visualization in perspective was commissioned by a longstanding client of Jeffrey’s illustration business: Carol Young of Auburn, CA.   This perspective view shows the proposed condos.   Jeffrey does many illustrations for a number of architectural clients in the South Bay, San Francisco, Bay Area Peninsula, and Sacramento areas of northern California.
