What amazing eyes she has! Smile I don't know much about studio lighting but it does seem quite light and is burning out some of the detail on her hands and face. Perhaps some warmer light, too? I'd also suggest cropping the bottom edge to get rid of the top of the chair - you'd still have the bend of her wrist to give context to the pose but wouldn't have that little dark band of colour getting in the way. Her hand underneath is a little ambiguous too so the crop will deal with that. Either that or change the pose slightly or cover the chair bit with some complementary-coloured fabric.

That's a lovely earring and it's a shame not to incorporate it more fully into her portrait - part of it is overshadowed by the blue fabric. Tidying up the neckline and making sure that the earring is sitting naturally and is in view will make a difference. I'm not suggesting that everything should be all neatly lined up and perfect 8-] but I think her earring shows part of her personality so it's nice to make sure it's given enough room. Smile
