More 40s Portraiture

The first woman in my current theme of 40s faces. Despite working quite heavily from ref for this one (I wish I could remember where the ref came from - it deserves a credit in this case, I think) I really struggled getting the eyes to look right. I think. Sometimes you get it into your head that something is wrong. Sometimes no matter what you do it never seems to get right. So this sat aside for weeks while I went to do proper work then I came back to it and bashed out the perceived problems without any trouble at all. A luxury you don't have against a deadline.
