Oil Sketch

Well .. here I am again .. I have'nt disappeared completely .. just part of me has faded away .. the part that produces art that is. 
This is an oil sketch that I did earlier this year when I had been away from using oil for several years and just wanted to touch on it again.  I soon got over it! lol  This simple looking painting took much longer to paint than it would have with acrylic or pastel .. so that turned me off .. being an impatient sort of  painter. :)
I wiped some burnt sienna mixed with Liquin over the canvas before starting then drew in the figure with a small brush loaded with burnt sienna.  I can't remember what happened after that .. I guess I just messed around with the flesh colours :0
