I'm not sure you need depth with this kind/style of painting - the emphasis is very much on you and adding detail behind would distract the viewer - just my opinion of course!
There's enough textural painting there to add interest.

I do hope you're not really that thin!!!! :lol:

I agree with Maureen, I wouldn't add a thing. It's terribly interesting as it is.

Thank you Maureen, thank you Gayle !!!

I think I'll even try something and let you know about it...

Very interesting figure!
A different take on the thin, withdrawn,
I like the wiggly arms and texture in the background!
