this is an illustration for spiritual and health magazine. the article is about a western lady leaving the life of a city girl and crossing over to become a nun. this is my first oil illustration ever. recently i've been doing all my personal work with oils and using gouache and acrylic for commercial work, but when john contacted me he sent me reference of all my oil paintings. with the quick deadline, i used straight cobalt dryer as a medium. here's one of the sketches that the art director liked. just added do thats and it was a go.
