Overall, your proportions are very good.

I think you summed it up best about the background. Between the colors, and the lack of follow through, the background gives your subject a somewhat distorted sense of proportion, which is not really true, as if you can "separate" youself from looking at the background, the model seems to be quite balanced.

What detracts the eye is the lack of support for her head, which makes her look uncomfortably suspended, and the warm tones by her legs and the angle of her right foot, which makes the lower leg seem "off" somehow.

Consider this a fairly successful piece for the subject, and a valuable learning experience on taking a moment to plan your background before starting.

Have a great day!
