This is an original oil painting of two boxing hares, in the rosy dawn sunlight.
These hares were spotted in my home county of Suffolk. I wanted to capture the dynamic relationship between the two of them and their expressive features. The beautiful light adds to the drama.
It is signed using an archival pen in the bottom right. This hare painting comes in a classic chunky frame that will suit most interiors and is ready to hang.
The image size is 51cm x 41cm (20" x 16") and is in a chunky frame that measures 64cm x 54cm.
It is painted in oil on a board prepared with two finely sanded layers of gesso.
I use traditional oil painting techniques in my work so if you would like to see how 'Whiskers at Dawn' was created, please have a look at the time lapse video below!
