Ginger Rogers Miniature

I came across this today, and thought I'd better finish it off. I started it when I did the Kathryn Grayson Miniature, but then I got busy and left it unfinished. 
So here we have Ginger Rogers, from a very early 30s publicity shot:

This was done on Bristol Board using a 0.5mm mechanical pencil with a #B lead and two small blending stumps. The reference was from

I can't remember how long I'd spent on it before today, but it can't have been long, as I hadn't got very far. It took me about an hour today, so overall it was probably about 1.5 hours. Not as long as Kathryn Grayson, but also nowhere near as detailed. I don't feel I've quite caught the look in her eyes, but I'm not sure what's missing. Maybe I'll work it out eventually, but for now I'm calling in done. 

Finally, here's a photo to show scale. The whole thing is 5cm in diameter.
