Day 30 - Badger

Well I had to finish off my little tribute to British Wildlife with our beloved badger, an icon of our British countryside. The badger was pipped at the post by the hedgehog in a poll earlier this year by BBC Wildlife Magazine to find a national species.

They have long been persecuted for their supposed risk to cattle in transporting Bovine Tb and are currently being culled as a means of controlling them in Somerset and Gloucestershire.

For other paintings of badgers I have done this month click here.

So there you go - thirty paintings in thirty days - I met the challenge - woooooohoooooooo!!!!  If you missed any you can click here and scroll through them.  Thank you sooo much for those of you who have been following and encouraging me to keep going as there were times when I started to lag behind and it was quite a pressure to catch up again!  I'll definitely keep painting our great British wildlife as I've only skimmed the surface in the last 30 days!  

I hope you've enjoyed following - here are the other artists who have taken part on Leslie's blog.  There have been some amazingly detailed works posted, I don't know how they've kept it up.


  1. Your Badger is a beautiful finale to our 30 paintings in 30 days challenge, Sharon. I loved your company on this journey and for as much as the pressure got a bit much sometimes, I loved every minute of it! Now ... what will we paint tomorrow! Tc ... xx

  2. Well done Sharon, having your theme also made your posts an interesting daily event to follow too

  3. Loved your 30 in 30. Mr. Badger looks like someone I'd better stay away from.

  4. Congratulations and well done. You made it. I loved all 30 of your paintings and have really enjoyed the journey with you. I looked forward, every morning to see what animal you would paint and was never disappointed. Thank you for sharing the paintings with us and may you go on to paint for many years to come.

  5. Congratulations Sharon, you made it! You should be proud of your achievement and talent, you created 30 stunning paintings, all following a great theme, and I enjoyed seeing every one of them.
    Now, what's the next challenge, I wonder?[;o)


I love hearing from you, thank you so much for leaving a comment - I will always try to leave a reply and pop over to visit your blog if you have one - although sometimes I may be slower than others, have a wonderful day xx
