Progress Picture #1: Nancy Pelosi

Nancy Pelosi by collage artist Megan Coyle

Here's the first stage of a Nancy Pelosi portrait I did a couple months ago. As you can see, the piece is a bit abstract and doesn't look exactly like her quite yet. When I start collaging portraits, I first block out the color and then come back in with layers of paper to work in more detail. I'll post the finished collage in a couple of days so you can see how much different my work looks once it's complete.

I'm thinking I might do a series of politicians sometime in the future. Looks like yet another item to add to my "to do" list.

She looks good already. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished work. I love the way you help us understand your processes.
