Too Close by charlottei Too Close by charlottei
When I saw some photographs on tumblr with dramatic, high-contrast lighting, I couldn't resist trying to paint it. This was meant to be quite a quick piece but took a bit longer than I anticipated, haha. I tried a new style of painting too - different brush, more small strokes of colour.

Composition isn't mine~
Art by me
Reference from tumblr
Title inspired by song Too Close ([link]) otherwise known as the Internet Explorer advert song which makes me want to hate it but I can't
