Mixed Media by Rhian Wyn Harrison
Tail, Eye Candy
Rhian is an artist and illustrator who works from her home studio in Paignton on the South Devon coast. In a previous life she was a graphic designer and typographer.
On reaching the hilarious age of 50, she realised that she had neglected her childhood love of drawing, painting and colour, so began to experiment, finding her artist voice and her own quirky style.
Mixed media work inspired by the word TAIL on the background vintage dictionary page. I decided on the biggest show-off tail I could muster, a peacock... The work has been created using ink, inktense, gouache and soft pastels, with a hand stamped lettering 'eye candy' alluding to his attractiveness to the ladies and to the eyes on his tail!
