Oil pastel sketch of a ballerina

So here is a small (approx. 7.5X10 inches) sketch of a ballerina tying her slippers. It is in oil pastels on clear-gessoed matboard. I used to love ballet so I enjoyed sketching this ballerina. I really need to work on honing my figure and skin-tone painting skills. I don't do it often and to be honest I often avoid it.
