WALLS, FENCES, BENCHES, PLANTERS, ARBORS, AND WATER ELEMENTS (FIGURE 15-22)

(Right) Use varied pressures and fading of blue to fill some of the arcs in the water pattern. Spas and Waterfalls (Left) Darken the top left portion of the spa, highlight the bottom right, and pepper periodically throughout the spa. Scallop it in black and highlight it with faded peppering. (Right) After the entire pool pattern is rendered, use “white-out” and a black edge line and shadow to highlight the water jet. (Right) Differentiate planter walls with different colors than the planting within, and make the sculptures colorful. Shadow them to portray their three-dimensional quality. Streams and Pools
(Left) Draw meandering blue lines for running water. (Right) Create contrast in the colors of the arbor and the adjacent elements, and add some shadow to the framework. (Right) Keep a band of white at the location of a waterfall. Walls and Planters (Left) Use gray and light blue for limestone caps, rust colors for brick, and tans and peach for sandstone. Then, pepper in various places. Fences and Benches
(Left) Use a brown and yellow combi­nation for wood fences and posts, along with some shadow to the bottom right.
