Artist's description:

This is a small experimental piece and is part of my continued exploration of painting water-based media on canvas. This hare is painted with Indian ink on a box canvas which has been primed with a special ground. I then used imitation (sorry not the real thing!!) gold leaf applied in the traditional way, over gold size. Finally I enhanced the image with a little colour and final touches of ink, before sealing it with Dorlands wax, which is a fine art wax, and giving it a gentle buff to achieve a sheen. So you can see that this one small piece had loads of stages, but I really like the end result. The leaf is distressed, rather than 100% smooth and this is deliberate, not down to my clumsiness, I promise! I like the feeling of age and slight roughness, as for me hares are ancient and have a ragged strength.

The image and leaf continue on the sides, and it is signed on the lower edge. It is backed and ready to hang. I am inspired to do a far larger piece, so watch this space. The only problem is that taking a photo is tricky, so I have done my best with the reflections, but if you need more images just shout.
