My humble opinion. All in all it looks like a great portrait. You have your own style of brush work. The coloring and lighting ok. When I look at a portrait if anything looks anatomically awkward it stands out. The thing that is standing out to me is the guy's left arm. I wonder, when I'm looking at the art, where is the top part of his arm. Is it resting on the pretty ladies back or is it behind the flowers. In proportion to his other one it feels like it wants to show somewhere. Like maybe both arms in front across his chest holding the ladies free hand.
Anyway it's a great portrait which shows you have skill. And that's just my opinion there might be another artist here with more knowledge on portraits than me. Ok so good work keep going be positive
Your gallery is full of wonderful art. I enjoy the flowers the most...reminds me of some of the great artists of history. Your art compares to Vazyl Tropinin. Your portraits are more "realistic", while his such as "a girl from pidillia", is more expressionistic.

In my opinion, "portraits" are about faces. So unless someone's head is resting in their hand, the hand is as irrelevant as the background. (to me)
Although there is nothing by which to compare the two faces, I believe you have managed two very extraordinary portraits. To me their expressions speak a thousand words. I believe you have achieved a remarkable piece of art. I find no critique in any real sense. Well done!
BTW....If they are still around, my bet is that they are well pleased with your work.
