A Lovely tone across the back; the lighting is perfect, not too light and not too dark so a beautiful range of muscle and skin texture is shown. A very beautiful piece.
Only thing i can pick at is that, asuming by the title, you want a relaxing look, yes? Please forgive me and ignore what i say next if i'm wrong in that asumption, and don't get me wrong, i feel that the piece is very soothing to look at; but if you wanted to make it a tiny bit more relaxing (as it is already almost as relaxing as you can get) i personally think two differnces (though extremely small and probably considered insignificant) in the piece may improve this.
The first is that i don't see tied up hair as a relaxed hair style, and i guess thats why people sometimes say "let your hair down" when they want you to relax. But the hair is a lovely and bright relaxing colour, and i therefor think would be even more soothing if it was down around the neck to the front between the hands as this way the back would still be visible, but now the hair has a nice and relaxed silky flow.The second is that the fingers seem maybe a bit too tense and simply need loosening up a bit like they are more placed either side of the neck rather than gripping either side.
But as for faults i can't see any worth mentioning, and as you can see, the improvements i sugested just are very minor. However once again, i must say i am very sorry if i interpereted the emotion that you was trying to get across wrong and in that case you can just ignore pretty much everything i just wrote. But regardless, this is an excellent piece definately going in my favourites.
What do you think?

I like the contrast on the two shoulders and hands, but still seams like a bit dull and flat lighting. I'm currently in the process of learning lighting myself, so this is my way of practicing. I suggest investing in few household lamps, and experimenting with them (that's what I'm doing right now!)
Also, would like it better if the head was more straight, so It gave some strength to the pose.
Still, a nice piece of work! Good job! =)
