I like this very much, especially the colors. But the light source is confusing. It seems to be coming from the right, but you have highlights on her right side (the left of the painting) there seems to be light coming from the front too so there would be strong shadows behind her head.

Bev.... Glad you like the colors. As To the light. I envision it coming straight forward but up and down at maybe 20 degrees so saw no need for shadow behind the head...

Nice. Difficult to paint face accurately in a small painting like this. Interesting yellow green on left arm in shadow area.
