These Crowded Streets

These Crowded Streets by collage artist Megan Coyle

"These Crowded Streets"
Collage on paper

Another scene inspired by one of my trips to NYC. I've enjoyed working on different angles of figures - by doing so, you can come up with some interesting narrative images. This was a piece that I revisited to edit and add more detail to it. Sometimes, when working on a collage, I can have a tough time getting into the piece. Although by setting it aside for a little bit of time, I can return to it later on with renewed energy and fresh eyes.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I somehow managed to hurt my foot the other day so I'm doing my best to rest up so I can move around like normal soon.

this is great, I especially like how different the two blue coats look, despite the fact the colours are so similar!

I'm a great believer in setting things aside and taking them up later, it really can help the inspiration!

I like the child on the shoulders ... just isn't the type of thing I expect to see in artwork. It's the naturalness of your images that is so compelling.

Yet another lovely piece Megan. Hope your foot is mending and you are running around soon :)

Beatiful! Love the shades of gray in the street and blues in the clothing. Wish I was nearby so I could attend your show and see these close up.

Hope your foot's feeling better.
