It is interesting that even though all that identifies Stephenson’s rocket is the shapes how easily recognisable it still is. This is partly because of how unique the shape of Stephenson’s rocket is compared to other trains. Also how people seem very good it just recognising objects by their shapes.

In this artwork I wanted to show the sleekness of the high-speed steam trains. I achieve this by firstly keeping the train quite thin and in particular low to the ground. Also by keeping the shapes of the train quite sleek and curved.

It was surprising to me when creating this artwork how blocky and square the shape of the train came out. Before creating this artwork I had always assumed that’s steam trains were all curves rather than being more square in shape.
