Esmeralda is described as a city of water by Calvino. To create thumbnails I tried using an abstract style to help me with ideas for possible concept art. I found that using a spray brush in a light colour gave the effect of city lights in the distance. This gave a lot of my abstract images a city form. Also I chose a colour palette that consisted of blues and greens. I felt if I just used blue it would restrict the atmospheric emotion and cause the images to look very similar.
