Acryl portrait "on the fly"

My oldest daughter wasn't too keen about having to stop her tinkering, but she held still for about 10 min - enough for me to start a pencil sketch on canvas and after that work it out in acrylics. Took app. 40 min, size is 20x30 cm. As always, I painted her a little bit older than her eight years (every time I overdo the contrasts on first try) - but hey, time will take care of that!

C&C always welcomed - no native speaker, so please help me improve
