. Isolated Cities
. Cities twinned with Leeds
. Cities that share the same name as well-known cities
|Cities Twinned with Leeds - Typical skyline idea, showing important landmarks/features of the different cities. This was dull.|
I was also going to look at mountain towns/cities but by the time I got round to that I realised that I definitely knew which theme i wanted to go with, Isolated Cities. I think this idea strikes me the most purely because I find it fascinating how people can live in places that are so far away or that are practically unreachable. When you live in a busy city it's hard to escape the bustle of everyday life but these places look so remote and for the most part quite tranquil, quiet places to live, it'd be interesting to be able to spend time in these places and experience how life would be when you don't have everything you may need or want a 20 minute walk away.
I also found drawing architecture really dull and boring, I much prefer working with natural forms and landscapes so I think I'll enjoy working on Isolated Cities. I want the actual towns to take up a minimal amount of space, leaving most of the postcard to show the environment, emphasising how isolated these places are. I think the next step will be to do a bit more research into the 4 different places I have chosen and then go back to my roughs and develop these more, possibly at the actual size the postcard will be. I also need to think about colour.
