First attempt at portrait/self portrait WIP

I've had my arm twisted by a wonderful opportunity and so need to set up a little art based Instagram account. I thoughts I'd have a go at a self portrait for the accounts profile picture. All I have materials wise are josonja acrylics and watercolour art journals. I tend towards too much light/white in my painting. I wanted to play around with foliage in place of my hair as my current work are Australian native flowers and bugs.
I think I've gotten a bit too heavy handed and ended up with too many layers as the paint isn't sitting smoothly.
Should I quit here are try again? Any CC is welcome

I haven't painted or drawn in years

I like the lively expression. It doesn’t look at all heavy handed.
