A lovely study Jean.
I would prefer the blacks to be sightly less dense, but they go well with the colors.

Adorable study! It looks very like the photo only, of course, very painterly! You've done well with the proportions too, I foreshorten too much so I have to over compensate when working on a full figure like this. Great image!

This is lovely. Wouldn't you change the color of the hat to the same beige as in the photo reference? I think it will go well since she is outside on a sunny day. Also, you might want to check the size of both legs. Her left left looks a little bigger (fatter) than the other.

Great job Jean. Maybe you have a ways to go but you have come oh so far already!

Barry is right on about that black shadow.
