I saw exactly what she meant (ah, the value of fresh eyes)! So I added more yellows in the bottom left...a bit more hide color down the right side....plus a hint of color down the front of her neck. I think it all helped to make the painting seem more complete.
Thanks for those suggestions, Connie!
My redo is on top...the original is immediately below.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Scatty was the gracious host this week who provided a bunch of colorful photos!
I just couldn't resist painting this face! Enjoyed the lighting and inventing a background.
I tried to lay the paint on a bit extra thick.
C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting! Those comments mean a lot!
