Artist Uses Leaves as Autumnal Canvases for Delicate Paintings

As the leaves begin to fall and blanket the ground, Polish artist Joanna Wirazka allows this seasonal process to inspire her. She collects various leaves and then repurposes them as eclectic canvases. Upon this natural workspace, Wirazka creates incredible landscapes with colored pencils and acrylic paints that further accentuate Mother Nature's immense beauty. Alternatively, she also enjoys depicting urban environments from around the world–including big cities like New York and London. When producing these metropolises, the creative pays close attention to the light emanating from skyscrapers and to the street signs that dot the never-ending avenues of their respective cityscapes.

“Art makes [the] world better and more beautiful,” Wirazka says. “Try to find real art everywhere and let it inspire you.”
