Art: Emma Leonard




























































These pieces from Australian artist Emma Leonard are just stunning.  I'm  impressed with the artists' use of negative space to create light and the beautiful line work which points to a mastery of pen and pencil.  Her use of watercolor creates a nice juxtaposition between control and movement as well.  These pieces and many more are available in Emma's shop Belafonte.  What do you think? Lovely, no?
