Thank you very much for your feedback! I like to play with the intensity of the colours sometimes(For instance: the blue/black layered background, the lips, the shirt). This is actually me when I was little so I wanted to show this burst and bloom of existence through the colours(since it's a "realistic" self portrait of me i tried to remove the tangibility of realism).@SavvCy welcome to the forum.
Your portrait is amazing! The colors are so appealing and the portrait is so well drawn (uh painted) and looks very realistic. The only thing I might change if it were mine is lighten up the lips just a tad. She kind of looks like she is wearing lip stick. But really and excellent piece.
