I think my best option is to make it look like here head sinks more into the fabric and perhaps give a stronger indication of the change of plane between her forhead and temple/cheekbone in the little bit showing between her hair and right breast.

I also think that the pastel strokes in the hair are contributing to the "broken neck" look. I'm going to change the direction where the hair comes back from her forehead.

love the colour work Michael, and a great long pose, though it seems most of us are having some problems resolving the head, shoulder, arm area!

Thanks Mac. I'm going to do some re-work on that area and re-post.
