Love it! Some of that blue ( a dark violet will also work) could find it's way into the shadow side of the glove to help turn it as a form with volume. Depending on the quality of the leather/vinyl of the glove it will have some shiney highlights ? I can only guess at that of course! Her face in the light is a bit blown-out ( like in a slightly over-exposed photo). if you add a small bit of skin-tone value/hue, you will have some headroom left for key brightest lights and highlights.

Wow, that is one really tough looking nun. Wonderful expression. I think the slightly overexposed facial colour gives her that pasty look that many nuns have (tucked away in their little convents) and it works for me. Would not change it. I love it.

Thanks for taking the time to comment guys.
Thanks for the critique Kevin, just the sort of thing I'm after. The face isn't as bleached as it is in the photo - I like the idea of the deep violet on the glove. I'll have a tweak and post another (hopefully slightly better) photo.
Thanks,
Joe.
