Downtown Cafe

Downtown Cafe by collage artist Megan Coyle

"Downtown Cafe"
Collage on paper
12"x16"

Like "Old Town Townhouses," this particular collage was inspired by a walk around Old Town in Alexandria, Virginia. It's also another piece that's currently on display in my NIH exhibit. I really like using reds in my cityscape pieces - with colorful brick buildings and brick sidewalks.

I'm still working away on my children's book illustrations. I'm almost a third of the way done - I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's all complete. I'm also about to get started on another commission portrait. Things have been busy but good.

OH GOOD! You have a new one! OK, do you work from your own drawings? Out of your head? I'm a little curious about process. The colors zing. You have enough gray tones to make the brights really sing. And, well, the red is wonderful!

Great colors in this one! And I love the textured pieces you used for the street. I'd love to sit there and watch the people walk by. Perhaps I'd see you. :)
