Tea Stall Near Tree

Art Traditional Art

Did this quick 15 mins lunchtime sketch today. There are a number of makeshift tea and snack stalls (taparies) near the office complex where I work. Most of the office workers prefer these to the canteen food, and business is always thriving.

As I was sketching¬†this stall from across the street, few¬†people gathered to watch. Then they got all excited and called the tea stall owner to watch. He was so excited that I sketched his stall, that he brought tea for me, and refused to accept money for it. He said, “You have honored me by sketching my stall. How can I take money from you!”. I promised to give him a copy of this sketch next week.
