Rajasthani Lady

I love to paint Indian women/figures, there is something so attractive about them. The grace, facial expressions, beautiful attire, jewelry, big and expressive eyes. I have been wanting to paint this particular lady for a long time but I wanted to do justice and paint when I was fully relaxed and had no other things on my mind. I took almost three weeks to finish this painting and I did mostly in oil colors. Here are some pics
