I liked the picture of the market, so I cropped it my way and painted waaaay too long! I can't do faces in small size.:o Kurlie :o

You picked a tough reference. I like the figure in the back, with no face (no face needed; the scene tells a story)

So you did't quite capture the face in the photo - it doesn't matter one jot. You captured the atmosphere of the market with the figures huddled behind and the main one has such character - you can see she's thinking "Can I go home yet - it's been one **** of a day". In my humble opinion it positively makes the painting.
