Lovely rendering of her expession
Her head seems to be floating in air.
Maybe changing the values of that ribbon would join them more.

Beautiful, but I agree - the head seems to be floating - possibly because there is no ear behind the hand on her cheek?

Beautiful work! And I don't see anything floating.

Beautiful skin tones, great details agree an ear will help with making her head seemed attached

Thank you all. :)
About the ear: the red ribbon is attached to the yellow headband (actually the headband is a cap partially covered by the braid) and completely covers the ears, as you can see in this image.

To partially solve the problem, in the final stage I have slightly extended the ribbon under the throat to suggest a stronger connection with the bow.
