Geishas - work in progress

Most of my coloured pencil drawings so far have been in a tiny 3x3" pad, so I wanted to try something a bit bigger and more adventurous. I'm not sure if the faces of these geishas have turned out exactly like the particular geishas in question, which is what usually happens when I draw people - they look human but nothing like the subject. I've included the original photo, taken in Gion, Kyoto. It was one of my favourite photos from last year's holiday.
