a beautiful painting, those eyes are really captivating. The only suggestion that I would make is to lighten up the lower part of the iris opposite the bright spot on the pupil---I would make it slightly to the right toward the outside edge, or not because it is a really nice picture. If you are not sure draw an eye and practice moving the reflected light around the eye. I don't paint humans, only animals, and that opposing bright spot seems to make the eye more alive.
Great painting. Very sensual due to the eyes and gesture. One thing that does seem out of place is the scarf around her face. The far left portion, past the nose, seems to be floating a gap between it and her right cheek. To check it, I would place a scarf around my face and see how it shapes around my face in a mirror. Otherwise, all looks great.
