The palette choice is delightful, the teal compliments the warm brown of the wood in the hair well. The thick, rich lines remind me of Art Nouveau; very cool. And the horizontal line loops my eye off of and then back on to the image, which is a really neat effect. Kudos!
I have loved Kawasaki art. I love her smooth lines and colors. Certainly I have absorbed something from her art that you can find in my works. Anyway we both take our roots from Art Nouveau and the love for wood... I think for that reason we seem similar ( or I seem a bad imitation of her hahah :-D )
I really like how you let the wood shine through and act as the hair. The straight line also works really well when paired with the rest of the soft curvy aspects. I also think you chose a good background color to complement the hair!
