Sister Rose
Private commission.

A rare oil painting. I used to paint in oils when I started to paint. There was a time when every painting I did was in oils. But then I discovered gouache and noticed that worked in combination with other materials as well. Watercolor and colored pencils mix just fine with gouache. About oils, I like the result but not the amount of time it takes to paint, I don't like the smell of turpentine, or maybe it's the cleaning of the brushes I hate more!
