After The Gold Rush.

Another Little Bit of Beijing. This was at the end of a very busy lunchtime in a dumpling house in Beijing. I was still fumbling around with slippery dumplings and chopsticks long after the big lunchtime rush when the staff gathered together for their meal. With them all being in white, the sunlight on the wall beyond and catching their clothes, it made an irresistible subject for a painting. A bit like the dumplings.
