This painting of two badgers with bluebells is a limited edition drypoint hand-made print, each individually tinted with watercolour. It also shows wood anemones – such bright early harbingers of spring – and a pearl bordered fritillary butterfly. The edition is strictly limited to 11 numbered and signed versions – all everso slightly different. Drypoint is an artist’s printmaking technique.
When you visit the University of Oxford’s Natural History Museum its a job to know where to look - at the marvellous exhibits? Or at the magnificent architecture? In this painting you'll spot a dodo, some dinosaur footprints, the swifts that nest in the tower, a dinosaur skeleton and so much more! My favourite bit is the frog in the jar. What's your's? The title comes from Charles Darwin's book 'The Origin of Species' in which he wrote of his theory of evolution by natural selection: "There is grandeur in this view of life..." The print is last one of a limited edition (of 4) hand-made drypoint tinted with watercolour - 450mm x 700mm.
