It's finished!

As mentioned in last week's WOYWW post, I've recently gotten really into painting (something I've not really done a great deal of) and had started painting a canvas.
 
Well, I managed to find a bit of time this afternoon to get the paints out again and am pleased to say my canvas is finally finished:
 
 
I'm really rather pleased with this. I drew the image straight onto the stretched canvas and then painted it. I feel like I managed to get the shading right and managed to take my time with it and get some real detail into it - especially in the eye and lips, and the shading on the hair. I like the colours and the stylised imagery with the large eye.
 
 
 
For my first "proper" painting, I'm really happy with it. I think I might even hang it up on display in my home. :)
