The effort shows, in a very good way, and that fine quality is in the painting. It reminds me of the best of 19th Century odalisques. She's very pretty, and you've done her full justice.
The background to the painting isn't quite clear, in a temporal sense. The furnishings give no clue, but is this a take on the Biblical story of Judith from the Apocrypha? Either way, it's VERY well done!
I can't even draw well, let alone paint, but this makes me wish that I had learned more.
