if this piece is any indication, you seem to know what you are doing. the color on this looks just fine. love the rendering of the over-alls

you might want to post a photo of your granddaughter if you want comments on likeness

just do more
well done
sensitive line and color

to focus on composition you can complete your works to the edges, and plan ahead to use the full space available

Frankly, I like the "unfinished" look, specially with portraits. The vibrancy of the colors in this is amazing. What brand of pastels are you using?

The only thing that bothers me in this is the lower lip. It seems too bright.

You have an awesome talent. Cant wait to see more!

Very nice and colourfull.

Seems you're doing a great job at what you find the hardest.
The remedy for your trouble is of course experimenting and trying and a good way of doing that is to have a same paper as the one you're working on next to your work to try out your colour combos and compare.
