Kerry Phippen’s ‘Reindeer’s Tears’ has a dreamlike quality. The plain, light background ensures the focus remains on the subject matter and colour is used in a considered, understated way. It is easy to feel the emotion between the two characters in a very equal and balanced way, which is almost unexpected. It also encapsulates some of the feelings of the festive season, lovely at this time of year.
