    Your Granddaughter is very cute! I think your painting is very good. My only critique would be the contrast of the face. On my monitor I'm having a hard time seeing her nose and other features. If you compare the pic of her you can see what I mean. Otherwise I think you've captured her charm very well.

    I would have to agree with Jibes on her nose. Otherwise a completely charming painting of a beautiful little girl

    Oh how adorable she is! There is also the options in the AR task bar to change or enhance contrast, brightness, color, etc. if you feel you need it. Wonderful painting!

    What a sweetie, you are off to a great start now perhaps add some shading to show the contours of her face

    I have experienced the same problem trying to get a good view at a brightly lit subject. Suggestion: Use layers..
    start out with a darker color base for her face, with it serving as the base shadow. Then use a lighter color over it to make highlight and contrast. Then as needed, add layers of dark and light in appropriate places until you have the look you want. I think it makes it easier to see what you are doing.
    Regardless, it's very well done indeed.

    You performed very well on the portrait and Your grandaughter is such a cheerful beauty that she really deserved this effort.
    I just see the need to improve the tonal range (one way is to duplicate the layer and even set the blend mode multiply in case, then trimming the above layer transparecy) and the color contrast (here You may work on another layer and give some appropriate glazes rather than using photomanipulation programmes).

    What a beautiful smile your grand-daughter has Moosie, keep at it and I am sure you will get there as it is looking very good.
