Watchful Lion

Watchful Lion by collage artist Megan Coyle

"Watchful Lion"
Collage on paper

 Here's the finished lion - you can see I added a lot of texture to his mane and reshaped his face a bit. He was inspired by another trip to the National Zoo. I'm lucky to live so close to the Smithsonian museums/zoo - I can always find something there that inspires me for future works of art. I should probably swing by some of the museums sometime soon - I have a tendency of spending most of my time at the National Zoo when places like the Natural History Museum also have a variety of exhibits that are useful references for animal collages. Anyway, I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! I'm off to enjoy the sunshine!

Oh Megan--I love this one. I have a fascination with lions. I suppose it comes from reading about Aslan.

Lovely--this just fills my eyes.
