Alkmaar Cheese Girl

Anthony and I went to Europe this summer, primarily visiting some friends living in Amsterdam for the year. One day, we went to the cheese market in Alkmaar. It was pretty touristy, but I snapped a couple pictures of the participants in their traditional dress:

I used this photo as a source for a line etching. There's quite a bit of foul bite on the plate, which I expected after seeing how the ground had rolled out, but I was curious if it would add some character to the otherwise sparse background...

My next step was to add the key colors with chine colle. I did a set of eight with the color, two of which already have a home!
