To begin, I would like to comment on the pure beauty that this work represents. Though simple as far as composition goes, it is striking to the eye and keeps you looking for more, seeing the smaller details that perhaps you would miss in a more complicated piece. The thick brush strokes are well placed and the stark contrast between the red and white force the negative space to bend and create aesthetically pleasing shapes.
It's also pleasing to the eye to see slight tones of pink and the darker black placed meticulously to give the picture a more three dimensional look that begs to almost come to life as the painting shows you something precious and almost royal, while not being insensitive to the shyness that her face presents.
Overall, a wonderful composition, and a very pleasing portrait. Wonderful job!
