Want to jazz up your floor plan? Take time to add character to your plan by rendering the patterns, texture and adding value. Here are a couple of things to remember. The patterns are rendered with just enough shape and key visual characters to show the flavor since you are viewing them from far away. To assist the viewer in distinguishing one object from another, plan to use a variety of value, line and stippling. It is great to have a picture or the actual finish to study as you are rendering. This will help you to capture the essence of the object or finish with important visual characteristics.
