Transforming a hand-painted Vasily Vasilenko watercolor into a nightscape for a Florida urban design firm.
"low-impact lighting is featured throughout the concept to reveal the stars"
To show how carefully placed and calibrated lighting would look at night, Michael painstaking converted the artwork into a nightscape. Warm, welcoming, and magical as the natural Florida landscape, lighting lets the city glow while being careful not to outshining the night stars.
Individual windows light up homes, community centers, and pools, while street lamps and lightning bugs weave throughout the work. This specific visualization aims to show a slow transition from farmland to suburban, and urban development, the lighting had to follow suit. Carefully collaborating with Stringfellow P&D, Michael was able to submit a design in under 24 hours that was used in the final winning proposal.
