Banjo Recital (Martin, 2012) Emily Martin works mostly with acrylic paints. Her works often have a warm gold hue which creates a friendly soft aesthetic. She also has a soft method of blending and the transition of shadows and light is smooth, giving her paintings the aesthetic of a pantomime backdrop.
