Happiness panoramaPosted: March 23, 2014
I’ve been saving this panoramic sketchbook that I received in Barcelona for something special but I wasn’t sure what. Turns out it was perfect to represent the organized chaos of dim sum. Carts going by piled with bamboo steamer baskets, waitresses yelling out the names of the dishes, and plates of dumplings coming and going on the table. I think the restaurant was more than patient with our group of over 20 sketchers —we definitely sketched more than we ate, and we monopolized three big tables — and it was only when the room was jam-packed and the lineup at the door got ridiculously long that they asked us to move on. If they’ll have us back I think this will be an annual event for the group!
