Interesting subject. I think the painting could use a bit more contrast though. It might just be the photo, but there isn't a lot of value variation. A bit more contrast in the background, and a bit more shading/modeling on the figure will help things "pop".

blah have captured the emotion of the woman....she is definitely in distress....Isnt this what painting is about. However your technical contrasts of light and dark can be added to make the painting more pleasing to the eye .

it's not a woman... it's a man. You see a woman because you automatically assume that women are the only one that get beaten. Men get beaten to and sometimes by their own wife. This painting isn't meant to be pleasing but disturbing.(The quality of the photo is also not very good)
