The painter was taking a short break in front of his painting

In the course of walking around, I came to one of the sections where artworks were sold. This vast market was categorized into 8 sections and the artworks section was one of them. Many artworks were displayed in each shop. Most of the artworks were sold as a souvenir. Therefore, they were made by the middle-of-the-road approach. It was uncommon to see contemporary arts here. Perhaps, the customers were Westerners and the artworks gave off an aura of the Asian atmosphere which was preferred by Westerners.

Some painters were working in some shops. The shop which I came was one of them. An incomplete canvas was placed there and its painter was sitting in front of the canvas. He held a cup and seemed to take a short break at that time. When I held my camera, he looked at my camera and smiled gently. Although his work was processing, it might be entirely satisfactory to him.
