Face #26 of 29. A Goddess

This is challenging to me: stopping way before I think I am done. Why? Because I am getting feedback here at home to stop adding paint  \(ツ)/

So, based on that.... I have here this lady. Not sure if she is a Goddess, Mother Nature, or just a sort of free spirit girl. I am not going to even attempt to make her even-faced. This is very lose brush for me and scary and all, I'm leaving it as is.

I am very happy with the background and a very simple palette:
