My project is a response to one of the Getty's outdoor alcoves, with travertine, rocks and water effects. I chose this area to model because I liked the aesthetic of the outdoor space; namely the textured rock wall behind the water. Through this project I was able to implement dynamics in order to accurately model the water effects. On top of that, probably the most time consuming aspect was approximating natural lighting, especially with the refractions through the water and the shadows rendered on the textured wall.
