Mission Statement
For the Space and Environment project Ive chosen to explore the city of
Esmeralda. Ive picked this city because the description, from Invisible Cities by
Italo Calvino, of the canals and water transport instantly gave me an image of
Venice. Then again, I dont want to take too much inspiration from Venice because
I dont what to be designing another version of it.
In my head Im imagining this city being set in a time where technology isnt as
advance so there wont be any cars, TVs, telephone etc. This city in known for its
variety of routes and ways to travel around the city so thered be a lot of boats
and canoes and on the solid path thered be carriages and people walking in
pairs. On the side walk there are shops and stalls.

For my paintings Im going to set them at around mid day/afternoon so my colour


scheme is going to be bright and vibrant. Theres going to be warm colours
(yellows and oranges) coming from the sun and a lot of cool blue and greens
coming from the canals.
