Between the jawline and the neck bothers me. The highlight on the cheek, along with the fullness you gave it, add the shadowed neck coming off flat.
It's alomst like the profile is in dimension, but it also pushes the throat back.
I like the overall feel of the piece.

To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."-John Huston, Director
Thanks OmenSpirits, I may lighten that area a bit...
I checked out your sketchbook... keep it up.
I agree with the previous poster. Her body just suddenly stopping is a bit "uncomfortable" to me. i would almost recommend cropping the piece so that it stops right where her body does. But I guess you can't do that if it's on canvas..
I love it. I like your jugement on the saturation (is purity correct instead of saturation?) of color in some areas of shadow, like her armpit for example. It's pretty bold to go with a saturated color in an area that's clearly in shadow. Most of us novices would have neutralized it even more, mainly from fear and habit of seeing a dark grey in there. One of the cons of learning in black and white.
I'd like to see what you could do in a similar painting but with some more of that blue you have going on in there.
