Please let me know what you think, it's a little larger than A4 size.

Very nice!! I really like the pose and your casual style of painting. I think the profile is off a little, maybe too much of the mouth showing, or the eye--not an expert here.

You must have done this from a photo?

This is so good despite one small flaw. The eye is right on the edge of the profile. It needs to retreat back and down a little over the cheekbone (a very small move!), with a bit of the bridge of the nose showing. Otherwise she's put together well. Sometimes one small adjustment brings a whole painting into place! There have been times where I've fretted over a face for days, then realized that the neck was wrong, or the hairline. Made the adjustment and the face was fine. That is what Shirl is seeing...if you fix the eye, the mouth will work! As will the rest of the piece. Good luck, and see y'all soon!

This may illustrate what I was talking about :)
