And the last one,  I found some pictures I took with my telephone and I never published (I think), when I was visiting France a year ago. So, I took some of the elements on them and I made some sort of Travel Diary.

Conclusion: for the first time I am using markers,I loved them because the colors are super intense and I do not have to tweak them a lot in the edition. But I need to get better markers.
Also, I add some coloring with pencil brushes.
