Hot tea is the most wonderful thing in the whole world. Well, except kisses))
The man is albino, yes)

Upd: Thank you for all kind words! I love you, guys! So sorry, but I can't answer to all of you, and I must give a little annotation to this piece. This is not historical scene, it is fiction. It's not Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan or China. It is my litte fantasy around of asian people and traditional clothing, a part of illustration for fantasy story wrotten by me and me friend. Sorry, but you can't read it eather. 8))
Next time I think I must show some of traditional russian costume...

I love the way your characters seem comfortable in the scene. The details of the clothing and the surrounding landscape are precise where you need them to be, and you fill in the rest in a painterly way. I really enjoy this image.

It would be a perfect illustration for the Eternal Sky books by Elizabeth Bear. Your people, their love of tea and horses, their costumes, and the landscape, look the way she describes her nomadic people.  I would love to read YOUR story someday.

This is still one of the most intriguing pictures I've seen on DeviantArt, even years later. It makes us ALL wonder what the story is, after all.  ;)

Oh my, this is awesome! You should totally paint some of these traditional lacquer boxes. They are so elegant and this picture is of exquisite beauty. It makes me want to do some winter BBQ! Plus I ABSOLUTELY love winter scenes! Do more of that, please Love    !

Wonderful! It reminds me of a manga I read, mainly because of the attire of the men, even that in the background! I really like it :)

Funny you mention Kazakhstan, because the woman totally looks Kazakh. I was actually very surprised when I met my first traveler from Kazakhstan and she was a strikingly gorgeous, vaguely asian looking woman with a Russian accent lol. Not every single person from Kazakhstan obviously has this very unique appearance, but many do.

Gorgeous work. I can almost feel the warmth of the tea in contrast to the bitter cold!

Обалденно!! Костюмы действительно получились интересным гибридом) А не калмыцкий-ли чай  они пьют, или что-то подобное ?-)
