Still Working - portrait painting work in progress

Every time I look, I see things that need correcting.  Didn't spend much time on it today - was busy outside - actually haven't spent much time at all on this little painting, but it's been fun to do.  Even though there really is a lot of cool blue in her hair, will remove some of it. Mostly, I just smoothed things and will probably leave it alone, except for something here and there.  Always so afraid of murdering my poor paintings. I hope this isn't too boring - thanks for stopping by - and I am totally open to critiques, ideas, tips, or anything else!

I love how you softened her face just a bit.....beautifully done...! Taking some of the blue way from her hair is fine but be careful because adding the blue is really nice!!!

Thank you, Hilda - I did follow your advice - took out some of the blue, but left enough that I think it will look good - thank you for your help - I really appreciate it!

Hi Connie. I like the changes you made to the painting.
Especially with her expression. It's subtle but it makes the portrait..
