Graphite Portrait in progress

9" x 12"
Graphite on Bristol

I used a reference photo that was taken the day I had had my hair curled. It was a sunny afternoon and I wasn't too sure about this change.

In the portrait, I hoped to show the time of the day by light and dark areas. Also, there is an attempt to capture the conspicuous conscious smile. I have yet to sign and title this. Do you have any suggestion before I take this off of my workboard in a couple of days?
