Flying Flames - A belly dancer in oils now

I fell in love with this reference at first sight and this time I have kept it really close to the reference. I did not want to change a thing, it was so perfect as it is!  As is the case with all my belly dancers, this one too is based on a reference photo from Flickr photographer Adelita Chohfi.

After doing all the belly dancers with Acrylics, I wanted to do one with oils for a change. The flowy fabric was great to work with oils as I wanted it really smooth and silky without any texture. I hope you like it! Let me know what you think!
