Here she is (right image) with hands that look more natural.
You can now see what her left hand is doing if you enlarge: pinching the fabric of her robe between thumb and finger. The grey colour in the background on the right looked a bit dirty, so I've added more blue and mauve to enrich it.
Also, today in my art group, I began the initial pencil sketch of a still life of a china doll.
I took a photo of the doll on my iPhone to continue work at home. The plan is to use the same techniques and media as for Japanese Lady i.e. acrylic paint (in water-colour transparent mode) on canvas textured acrylic paper. Oil pastel touches on top of the paint bring out the texture of the canvas paper. The painting can be done in layers: it's effective to use transparent tones of acrylic on top of the pastel (as well as pastel on top of acrylic), so that the canvas grain remains visible.
