Watercolor Portrait of Kevin's Mom Joyce - Building up Facial Features and Final Details on Beach

I have built up more definition on her face but it may require a bit more depth in the shadows once dry. Her eyes and lips will then be darkened a bit using the same colors, just slightly darker values.  I have also narrowed her jaw a touch on her right side and added a more golden glow to her skin.

The shadows in the sand have been deepened and the grass built up more.  I think a bit more rusty darkness is needed at the base of the grass in areas to fully anchor it down, similar to the grass near the pole more.  I have darkened the sky color as well and believe it is dark enough but may add one more layer, darkening just the top of the sky.
