Cheryl,  this is indeed a wonderful painting.  The lovely details of it.

I almost never venture to participate in the pastel forum, but this is a wonderful subject.  The details of the dress and the beads work are very well done.  Humans are drawn to the eyes and the slightess distortion makes it look off.  The correctons suggested represent less than 1% of your painting, yet key to a portrait. So much worth fixing that little area and make it perfect... so so close.  Hope the paper can hold it.  Please post the correction.
Cheers, Annie
