Middelburg and Zierikzee: New etchings

This coming July and August we hope to be standing on the weekly historical market in Veere demonstrating how etchings are made. Last year Francesco made an etching of Veere, and we wanted to make a few more of the surrounding towns and villages, so we started with Middelburg and Zierikzee. All measure 6 x 9 cm and were made on copper plates. The etching of Zierikzee was also treated with an aquatint for the water. I can't wait for the markets to begin!
