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.
