This is my latest personal project. I tried to recreate scene from a real life architectural project called Water Cherry Villa designed by Kengo Kuma architects. I wanted to visualize a nice calm spa space and this one caught my eye because it looked very authentic.
I used fspy to get things into perspective
Everything was modeled except the vertical background (shrubbery) far back.
Water flow was simulated using Mantaflow liquid module that comes with Blender. I tried to get smoother water flow like in a reference photo but it was like the scale was too small to achieve that.
And I didn’t want to change the scale because I like working in real life scale scenarios.
Rendered using E-Cycles and color grading was done in Affinity Photo.
And here is the reference photo:
