I am having what I call a dry run. I am going to do a painting of my grand daughter for a christmas present so doing this first. Please comment as I find faces hard.
Very nice work. Nice attention to all the little details. The faces all look pretty good to me. They are well drawn/painted and the expressions look completely natural. Lots of interesting color in the piece.
I think your (Dry Run) might actualy be better than the proposed finished piece              It looks fresh lose and very natural.........I think you have IMHO already done what you intended              If you try to do better you may overwork it.....leave it as it is..........it's lovely
