Starting Elevation for the Kitchen

All right, let's get started with the elevations for the kitchen. What is an elevation on elevation is what you see, as I had mentioned before in this course is what you see on a view off, whether it would be a piece of furniture or an interior straight on straight on, without perspective. All right. So you would have 90 degrees when everything. So this is my kitchen, and I have to elevations over here. One with the ill with the island one without. Why do I have that? If I go back into the, um, into my floor plan, we see that the island is occupying the centre off my kitchen here. Okay. And at this point, and this is my kitchen counter right here. And that's my refrigerator. Okay. Remember what I was doing in class might disses me. Hey. Hey, Mom, I'm standing here. If I am standing here looking at the kitchen, um, I get which one of these two I would get this one right. The elevation with the island in front of it. And this is not what you want. I included it here so that we would have...

a comparison. So this is not what you want. You want to do you want to stand over here? Let's imagine this is my face of my nose. Very long nose looking at the at the kitchen counter. I want to look at things without any other objects interfering with my view as much as possible, at least. So that's why I would want to stand over here so that I would have a full shot off my kitchen without the island. So, having cleared that out, then he would get it would get easier to render this right. So most cases, most case in areas you would not really have to render just any dependent piece of furniture or a Millwork peace in this case. But in some other times, you might want to do that. All right, So what is an innovation and elevation again is what you see in front. And these are some pieces of furniture that I drew. These belong to the living room, but still applicable. What we have is Theis chair or this table over here. Would you look at when you have a piece of furniture, you look at it straight on. That's your front view. That's your right view. And that's your back view. Now we're talking without perspective. The legs of these piece of furniture, the front legs would be lined up with the back legs as you look at the piece of furniture straight on. Right again, it's not. Perspective is just looking straight on now. If I have a piece, place that 45 degrees. The elevation would be slightly different. You would have to place it that you would have to do the elevation. Where do you see at 45 degrees to like? For example, having this is my pencil sharpener. It's pretty much a box. If I look at it straight on, that's what I see. Flock the top and the bottom item. See, it's a flat surface flat surface. But if he displaced that 45 degrees, I see the two sides steal the top being flat because it's a projection. It's a North. A graphic projection. That's why have this. That's a reference so that you would know what to do. All right, so these are the elevations, and quite often you would have to render them too. All right, so let's get them rendered quickly. What I would do here is just get some colors to get a sense. What do I do? Always right. You test your colors and decide who that's right. Right. And you get a sense off where we're going with this. If I wanted to do my kitchen in yellow, then figure yellow color, and again you would just work with Fallon strokes from beginning to end. If you have an open shelf, meaning that you have, um, you have Cubby, that doesn't have a door. You wouldn't have to add an extra shadow on it. All right. That alone would give me a sense off depth with the shadows that this is an open structure. Then I can add some extra shadows over here to make a deeper. Now I use my pencil sharpener. Remember what I was talking about Textures, right. It could be applicable here. You can also do some pencil lines to really show the texture that grain of the wood. Right. So you might want to show that it's painted wood, but still shows the grains. I would do something like that when you render elevations. You don't have to go crazy with them. Just enough to show the material. My simple colors would do the trick. If you have some volumes, he would show it like if the moldings would have some detail you can show them to. You can also use if you want to define a bit more your elevation. You can just add a thicker outline to define it a bit better if you want to add even darker shadows for the opening so that they will look really dimensional. You do that and then even more like a second pass of gray. This is warm. Five. I don't want to use warm five. Maybe when I used warm four instead. This is a topic that is slightly overhanging some. I want to add a shadow underneath so that it shows the overhand so in elevation off a piece of furniture. Millwork could be a simple us this
