Conceptual Design Part 2

Here is the Beaux Art like composition or layout that I decided on for the design of this quilt. It uses a variety of scales, views, details of the client's property in Watkins Glen NY.

You will see the summer cottage or pavilion, a wooden bench that remains on the main site's upper lawn, a beautiful arching set of steps leading to the upper lawn, the cottage, the river that runs across the property down to the lake, the water fall.

The goal was to create a composition that uses layering, merging, the juxtaposition of multiple scales and details -- all aspects of the Beaux Art drawing.

This is the final conceptual sketch:




This is the concept developed in Photoshop:



This is the concept developed yet again in Autocad:
