Original artwork; watercolour on Whatman paper c.1969,
The precision and expertise that is emblematic of his work comes from early training as a draughtsman and book binder. As is evident in this piece, Wyles’ work is characterised by an attention to detail. His favoured medium of watercolour provided his work with a refined quality; the brushstrokes are more evident and contain more shading than in the more graphic. The original painting is approximately 30 cm wide x 41 cm tall.

This is for a six-part serialization of Paul Gallico’s novel Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Paris for a popular women’s magazine. Before the advent of full colour television in 1969 women’s magazines were enormously popular in the UK. A magazine like Woman, would sell three and a half million copies a week. Their influential art directors competed to hire the freshest illustration talent of the time to illustrate all manner of content including exceptional short stories and serialisations.
