don't know if I can give any worthwhile critique.......but a few thoughts, observations......

I could probably better appreciate this one seeing it in real life.
the look in the eyes is somewhat scrutinising, possibly, but not offensively so.

I'm looking at this thinking of vincent vg's sp.....

i could happily spend some time under this gaze.......

an idle thought....

this particular technique (or a variation of it) you employ seems ideal for this painting and for others i've also seen, but I wonder if it might become too hackneyed if you were to ALWAYS use it. It's alright people saying they like 'this style' but if galleries kinda expect the same from you all the time, you eventually become a prisoner of your own making......do you think? unless you have the courage to come out and say......"now for something completely different".. like it's a way of you keeping one step ahead, and in control. ha! suppose it depends on who's paying your bills maybe...... :D
