It's a good start. Obviously you have difficulty with the hand and face. They seem to deviate from proper anatomy. Her hands looks as if it has no structure within it. Try using reference next time. Think to yourself, the human body has about 206 bones. The hand includes the carpals, metacarpals, and the phalanges. In the face, the zygomatic, and the jaw, etc.. These bones are held by muscles, that form the shapes of our body. The light bouncing off these shapes form an image of the human form. With the lighting, try to set her apart from the background.
Good stuff. I like the hair and the flowers too.
