Beautiful painting Elizabeth :congrats:
I am just missing some contrasts in the central white areas to show that the area is round. Use a look carefully at your reference photo to see the low contrast colours in that area and paint them in too O0

Nice work Liz.

The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.
