Only a Sweep. A Common Ballad

Figure descriptions
A young man and a young woman meet in a city street. The man leans against a wall and stares at the woman. He wears a cap, and his face and clothing are both covered in soot. The young woman stands in the centre of the image with her face illuminated. Her hair is tied in a low bun and she wears a dark, tattered shawl. She does not return the man’s gaze. Multiple adults and a child gather in the shadows behind her. 1/2 page.
