The Otter Sisters

The Otter Sisters by collage artist Megan Coyle

"The Otter Sisters"
Collage on paper
18"x24"

I have to admit that one of my favorite things about collage is how it's always a surprise how a collage will turn out. Sometimes you can find some pretty interesting textures and patterns in magazines, and when they are cut a certain way - voilĂ , it all comes together. Other times you can end up with some pretty unsatisfactory results, but all in all, it's an exciting process. I was pleasantly surprised with "The Otter Sisters" - at first I wasn't too sure what to think of it. But after setting it aside for a while, then returning to work on it briefly, I was happy with the mix of texture on the otters and in the background.

lovely collage, the green leaves in the corner are a nice contrast to the quieter colours in the rest of the picture.
