Buddhist nun

Buddhist nun (detail)
This is one of my VERY few attempts with oil colors (mainly blue in this case). It was done back in 1998 and I don't think I used oil paints since. Back then, I was very interested in the monks way of life, especially the Zen buddhists.
I hope to get back to oils sometime as I remember it was a very satisfying experience.
Here's the full painting.
Oil + cardboard

Wow! That's really awesome. You should totally try some more oil painting.

Thanks. Oil paints are not very easy to use. I don't have enough patience for that at the moment. :) I'm sure I'll get back to it at some point.
