She Comes in Colour

In my wanderings through the many blogs I follow I often discover new shops, collections, inspiring images and in some cases, artists. I find myself very much drawn to watercolour of late, perhaps because it is the one paint medium that I could just never get right so my admiration for those who can is great. Liss' blog Daydream Lily is a constant source of inspiring finds for me (if you haven't seen it, you should check it out), and in one of her recent posts I discovered Australian artist Emma Leonard, whose dreamy ink and watercolour illustrations are absolutely lovely.

I took a peek in her shop and found a number of prints I would like to eventually add to the growing collection of art (mostly yet-to-be-framed) piling up in my apartment. The above are two of my favourites from among those featured in Ms. Leonard's etsy shop. And if you're seeking inspiration? Have a look at her gorgeous tumblr, here.

P.S. Sending a thank you to the lovely Leah of Little Red Purse for her sweet mention here!
