I am not a figure or portrait painter so I can't tell you how to fix things but I can tell you what I see that is off. Her shoulder is way too small in comparison to her arm. The hand that is shown fully is not shaped correctly. The finger valley's are too wide and the arm again is not blanced size wise with the other arm. Hope this helps.

I think you did a very nice job. The colors are good and you did a great job with the water. I do agree the shoulder looks off and her mouth might be a bit too far to this side. Thanks for sharing

Good colors and feeling here. You've captured a mood and that's an important accomplishment.
CW's points are good. You can probably fix the shoulder by adjusting your values.
Check the location of the corner of her mouth vs the corner of her eye.

Hockney inspired? I like how the light beaming through the water hits her body. Great job.
