...go on ! It seems you found a good technique.
My suggestion: now improve the hair aspect, it has a lot of relevance on "framing" the face.

Thankyou dinasset, Erisian made a great tutorial. I've found a really good photoshop tutorial for hair and I'm attempting to create the same effect with Gimp. Getting the exact correct brush for the path strokes is the key I think.

I don't know whether you like to use only the painting technique or accept to use other Gimp capabilities.
In the latter, just applying more contrast on the head could improve the result a step further.
Example:

You're on the right track.

Here I applied brightness/contrast on the whole image (simpler..., a bit different result)

Thankyou PhotoMaster, Issabella and dinasset, your encouragement motivates me.
I hadn't given any thought to overall tweaking of the image dinasset, I really like the outcome of "plus contrast", something to consider, thankyou.
