New curling portrait

My first watercolour painting in 4 months, based upon the same visual style of my only previous curling portrait (Eve Muirhead, completed very nearly 2 years ago).

I'm not completely happy with the finished outcome here, but thought I'd share it anyway, saying as I've done so little real painting this year.
I like the graphic style, and the colour scheme works okay (certainly better than it was half-way through), but the portraiture of the face is just too graphic/simple for my liking.
I think a bit more realism in the face is all that it needs to greatly enhance the overall image: But considering how little portraiture I've done recently, I can't complain.
