When you begin researching ideas for projects try to capture a lot of information in one image. You don’t have to use it all in one design, you can pick elements from the image to inspire many. For example, in this image I could create one design using just the skyline with the bridge and tower shapes, one using the blocky nature of the buildings, one focusing on the florals and finally one encompassing all the different elements. Ultimately this image inspired me to produce a collection of woven jacquard textile designs and a range of drawings as there was so much potential in it!
