Portrait of a Chinese Lady

This is a portrait I painted of my wife's sister. She is Chinese. The painting is quite large - 60x70cm, oil on canvas. I was looking to practice my tonal values with this piece and to capture her expression. It was a challenge but I feel the result is a progression from previous portraits I have done.

Very nice...since you left the brushstrokes apparent, it looks like pastel.
