Couple by the Potomac

Couple by the Potomac by collage artist Megan Coyle

"Couple by the Potomac"
Collage on paper

I'm really getting into exploring different angles with my people collages - before I was pretty attached to the basic portrait composition where I focused in on the face of the sitter. Here the background has a pretty strong role and the figures are much smaller.

And now I'm off for a day filled with errands while escaping my warm apartment (they haven't turned the air-conditioning on yet).

I am so glad you show the creation of your work through several steps! I love watching the work develop. It is so interesting to watch a flat image evolve into one that has depth am movement!
