John Howard Sanden - Exercise on 'Nigerian Lady'

This is my second exercise following John Howard Sanden's 'Portrait s from Life in 29 Steps'. Today, I am working on the Nigerian Lady, step by step.
I don't have Venetian Red or Cadmium Red Light colours but I'm making do.

Spent some time on this one. My reference photograph stopped just short of her arm so I had to improvise and added the basin. Not sure it works.
