I first set a range of colors, inspired by Florence, to use in my narrative. The inspiration came from the paintings from the middle ages. The use of gold was really common in this time, which is why I placed the colors on a gold background.  Then I thought about what was stuck to me the most of the trip. Some how I felt like there were a lot of contradictions in Florence. I wrote down some words that could sum up those feelings;

 

These words I represented in little drawings. The first set is a part of some sketches. Later on I decided to use a gold background to make a connection with the paintings from the middle ages.
