Watercolour Painting of a Woman's Face

I'm still practising faces and with all this practise I'm sure to keep getting better at it.  I do so enjoy it.  Here is my latest completed painting of a woman's face.  The only thing I'm really not happy with are the eyes.  They are not alive enough.  But overall I am quite happy with her because she looks pleasant, open and friendly and I love her hairstyle!

I read once in a watercolour painting book that covered everything from landscapes to portraiture, that they eyes are the best place to start when doing portraits and if they are not right then you might as well start over again from the beginning.  I will persevere!  Thanks for looking.
