First you should know that I think this is amazing and I could never compare. Now I hate to be a downer but as I stare at this beautiful painting longer and longer I notice something with the proportions. I'm not sure if I am not seeing the complete angle but something seems off and I just can't put my finger on it. Something to do with the face or surrounding area. I only bring this up because I noticed you left a comment saying you appreciated helpful criticism. So please don't think I am a hater.

Amazing how you could even capture her facial expression, and body language. to me it looks like an "I'm-going-to-give-you-a-show,-and-you're-going-to-like-it" expression.

I admire the precision with which you have drawn her contour, and her beautiful ballet costume :)

Well done!
