You've Got The Love

Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend!
Thought I'd show you a painting which I started yesterday and finished off this morning, and it seems to have divided the opinions of the people I've showed it to so far! It's a lot more imperfect and spontaneous than the stuff I normally do, but I'm rather pleased with how it turned out, plus it was great fun to paint! :) I was inspired to do it after I came across these amazing paintings by an artist called Corno, and really wanted to have a go at her style of portraiture. The picture I worked from is this photo of Karen Elson, but I think it turned out to look a bit more like Florence Welch, haha! What do you think?
