The Dumpling Makers
Here’s a sketch of the cooks at Qing Hua dumpling house here in Montreal.
The restaurant is small, and always crowded with people enjoying their dumplings. It’s kind of warm and homey, nothing special about the decor. Off to the side is this small window through which you can see a constant bustle of activity. People inside are working furiously, producing tray after tray of hand made dumplings. Each one perfectly sized and shaped, and very tasty!
I did this one (from my own photo reference) as a live painting demonstration at the general hospital. (We just recently participated in their annual fundraising art-show). Just for fun, I made a brief time lapse animation of the painting from start to finish.
