Update on Mum's portrait for the Archibald entry

Here's an update on my Archibald entry portrait of mum.I'll include the earlier version + the latest. Below is the first attempt..

I usually take a lot of time to get the proportions correct when I am at this stage in a portrait..But it was mum wasn't it? It should just ooze out onto the paper..durr..WRONG..I ran out of time which is why the eyes & mouth are a bit harsh but I was trying to work from feel and several remembered angles.
 She is quite a gentle old fashioned lady & this was way too harsh..
