Kathy, I admit there are similarities but I have to make another attempt to get the likeliness. I have added the original now.
Life is more exciting with art....

Made some corrections: made the nose smaller, eyes less fish shaped, corrected some parts around the mouth.Still cannot get this puffy cheek look better. :-\

Nice work, Gita.  Not sure how you do it, but you seem to have taken well to this new medium.

 :thankyou: Danielle,  ( Gitano...  :2funny:)
 :thankyou: Mea, hope to get better. But holding a brush in your hands to paint will never loose its charm. Though, I am going to draw my daughter next.  :D

Oh yes, that helps having your photo. I think you may slim some of the fullness in your face (On the portrait  ;) ) if you define the jawline darker. In the photo, your jawline has a distinct line. You went softer in the portrait. I see the same on the shadow in the nose. Look very closely at the subtle highlights and shadows of your face. They will give you the couture.

That said, you have done a beautiful job. This is just looking at the fine detail.

Kathy, I uploaded my reference as you wished. I prefer to stay a bit in the background regarding my photographs on the web. Feel a bit uncomfortable about this, I removed it. Hope you understand this.
But I thank you very much for your very valuble suggestions. I tried implementing them for some hours but it is rather difficult. I have to practice a lot in portrait drawing. I shall give a second try.  :1hug:

I do understand, Gita.  :1hug:  Please don't be hard on yourself. Your portrait is beautiful and I admire your work. I look forward to your next one.  :painting:

You may have seen my pencil portrait attempt. It was scary to sit in front of a mirror and draw myself.  :P
