Chinese Umbrella Ladies

Chinese Umbrella Ladies - an oil painting by South African artist; Stephen ScottChinese Umbrella Ladies
Oil on Masonite

While having breakfast at Groot Constantia wine farm (the first wine farm in South Africa!) we noticed that a group of Chinese ladies were staring at my daughter; I think they were fascinated by her blond hair and blue eyes.
Then they started taking pictures of her, at first they were trying to take the photos so that we'd not notice, but only a short while later they were blatantly turning our breakfast into a photo shoot.
As they wondered off the matriarch took out her umbrella and held it up to shade her daughter from the African sun - I took out my camera and snapped a few reference shots... We're even now

Another Seated Nude in Charcoal

Seated nude
Charcoal on Paper

We got together last night after a few weeks of being homeless (our studio is being renovated) - we annexed a friend's house and turned her upstairs area into a studio for the night before heading out to the pub.

All in all it was a very successful evening out.
