The face is very strong, it reminds me slightly of braque/ picasso.
Are you trying to create a flat , or 3d image, the right side of the face as you view it is much more 3d. I think my only real criticsim is with the background which is rather unformed, especially the hair, do you want to make it darker to make the face stand out? or have some highlights reflected at the back/on the side?
Possibly a contrasting colour for the background and maybe lighter on the right fading to darker on the left ( in opposition to the light on the face)
I hope that these suggestions are useful. I am usually a very figurative painter, but I hope I can see where you are coming from! :D

I like this pallette. I like that the subject & b/g have the same pallette. It is very warm. Usually not big on "headshots", but this one works very well and has a lot of depth. The Hi/Lo lites really work well off each other.

I like the positive negative and reliance on arcs.

Love the painting and colors chosen, simple, ever-so-slightly cartoonish, yet well featured.

graphic, yet realistic...
forms, lighting, composition, colors
all working well

feeling...
stern but/ and compassionate
attractive woman
who is basically centered and realistic

(I say basically centered, only because...
no one is perfectly centered)

Interesting and provocative.
Concave section of neck keeps pulling my eye. Has such a definite movement. Feel it may be a bit strong and is taking me away from the face.
