She's beautiful! And I love the hat! You really gave her great feeling and expression in her eyes.

WOW! This is magnificent!:eek::cool::):):):)
Maybe it took You a little more than usual (and the model in pose seems about to lose her patience:D:p), but the outcome is sheer beauty!

I think You did focused on her, dear mate, because she's at the crossing of at least two major diagonal lines/ paths.
Without any clear clue to go around and get the focal point in a painting, such in this case, the main subject to eventually focus on is generally suggested to be placed according to the so called "sectio aurea" (golden section), that is, approximately, on one of the four points You get at the intersections of a couple of the horizontal and vertical lines drawn at one third of the width and one third of the height respectively, rather than in the centre.

... :D I guess that among Van, Toulouse and the many other greatest painters, most of them had a good expertise on compositions and all of them a natural gift for it. Obviously tips, tricks and rules may always be of some help to artists whenever it seems it's a bad day for their inspiration and outcome and they like to know what possibly doesn't work ....:p
