Fox on Gold (SOLD) and Hare on Gold
By Grenville Moore
Acrylic on cradled board
Image size: H: 40cm x W: 40cm
Framed size: H: 54cm x W: 54cm
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.
ABOUT GRENVILLE MOORE
Grenville is an accomplished and distinctive painter working from his idyllic garden studio in a small village on the Warwickshire/Oxfordshire border.

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.
