As a child I was very enthusiastic about drawing all natural history but badgers were a favourite subject. This painting was planned to be much more complex but I had been working on it for only half a day when I realised it was finished. I looked at it for another few hours but could see nothing more to do. It is both one of my simplest paintings and one of my most popular. Many years later I revisited the painting to produce a limited edition fine art print. for the print to be more unique i redrew the badgers to replaced the existing ones.
