Naxi Woman - NFS

4/11/10 "Naxi Woman", 10" x 8", Oil
This is another "limited stroke" sketch from a photo of a Naxi woman from Yuhu Village, Western China.  Every afternoon the owners of the guest house would gather in the courtyard with the neighbors and play mahjong.  This was about 9000 feet elevation in March so it was cold.  They had cement basins with hot coals in the courtyard to keep warm.
