AutoCAD is used to model the building design on computer, and a number of views are sent by email for consideration.

After discussing colors and materials, the full-size drawing (usually about 20" wide) is transferred to watercolor paper and painted, using watercolor.




With photorealistic images, the building is modeled in mass, and preliminary views are sent by email. With a view chosen, the rendering is completed and rendered at a resolution appropriate to its use.


DIGITAL ANIMATIONS are also available.



For more than 25 years, David Hartley has provided professional architectural illustration services for some of the nation's leading architectural and development firms.

As a licensed architect in Atlanta, Georgia, he draws upon building design experience to accurately and effectively translate your concepts into finished architectural renderings.

Shown here are examples of both traditional watercolor, as well as photorealistic illustrations. No matter which approach fits your marketing needs, special emphasis is placed on lighting to soften and enhance the project image.






DIGITAL ANIMATIONS AND WALKTHROUGHS are a specialty. Click link for a recent walkthrough- other examples are available.
