Jan 16" x 20" Oil

WIP or finished? A bit hard to tell from this awful photo, my husband took th better camera to work today. Something is a bit askew, and I think it is the eyes, or it could be the nose. Or is the mouth too big?!!! Methinks there is more to do on this one.
Your comments would be very welcome. Thanks fo your visit.

I went back and had another look at the WIP's and to my eyes, this looks absolutely finished. There is a lovely softness about the face, the skin tones are great and the red brings the whole painting alive. Fabulous Sharon!

I think its a fine painting... acouple of thoughts ,try complementary colors, put one eye in the center vertical line (in the future),divide apainting into 3 values dark,grey,white then make one value 70% of the painting,one value 25% and the other value 5%...these things please the eye

I think you may be right. I at first thought they were not focussed together, but it looks as though her right eye is slightly lower. All else is very impressive, so it must be that!
