Another pair of animal portraits turned into an artistic tour-de-force by this artist. He is particularly in love with, and adept at painting, hares and foxes.


The beauty of each animal's features and fur is set of wonderfully against the rich gold background which adds a delicate, vintage appeal.


We enjoy the keenness of their wild instincts as well as the sensitive expressions and detailing that the artist likes to add to make each animal an individual. 


    Grenville is an accomplished and distinctive painter working from his idyllic garden studio in a small village on the Warwickshire/Oxfordshire border.


    After many years when illustration, design and cartoon strips were his hobby, he became a specialist decorator and muralist and completed assignments and commissions in homes throughout the Cotswolds and London. He also wrote and illustrated articles for two national publications. Among his projects were a large painted vase for the Ralph Lauren store in Barcelona and various items of painted furniture.


    These decorative and interior design skills remain with him - and very much on show - in his paintings of wild animals, many of which are enhanced and embellished with backgrounds of rich tapestry motifs, Arcadian glades and medieval-style foliage. His love of heraldry also shines through in clever motifs and touches of symbolism.


    A trip to Kenya first sparked his enchantment with wild animals and birds and inspired his current, very popular work which specialises in dramatic animals portraits, often large scale and close-up. Detail and accuracy are key. He is passionate about telling the story of each creature, accentuating the unusual and celebrating the wildness, dignity and soul of each animal. The rich narrative of the painting is often further enhanced by its elaborate or traditional framing, matching perfectly with the inventive, decorative backdrops.


    Grenville's work is in private collections in America, Russia and throughout the UK.
