This is a lovely portrait, Jan. You must be well pleased with the results. The only thing that I see which distracts me a bit is the neck. Perhaps a little more something with the neck, as the head seems to be lost, and floating a little?

Plus, have you thought of posting in the Portrait forum (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=13)? There are many very accomplished portrait painters there who are both knowledgeable and helpful.

Cheers!

lovely, expressive, delightfully different.

the only distraction for me is the brightness of the little wisp/curve of hair next to her eye, i'd just tone down the bright a teeny bit.
