Zwarte Pieten

Once more one of my recent attempts at digital art based on my own photographs, created with the free software SuperPhoto that came with my new laptop. Appropriate for today, when most of the Netherlands and a large part of Belgium celebrate the childrens' festival of Sinterklaas and his aides, the Zwarte Pieten (Black Petes), who are depicted here playing music in front of our gallery. More about this (nowadays for some controversial) custom can be found in these Wikipedia links (Sinterklaas en Zwarte Piet). The link below leads to the original photograph.
