This delightful original watercolour by Jonathan Walker depicts a hedgehog in a suit. The wildlife that Walker witnesses in nature near his home in Dartmoor have inspired his masterful watercolours. Walker’s rare ability to give to each of the animals he depicts their unique characteristics and personas, while dressing them up in old cast-off human garments never robs them of their intrinsic “animalness”.

  • Jonathan Walker grew up in the heart of the Staffordshire Moorlands. He spent much of his childhood exploring the countryside in the company of his father and it is this closeness to nature that has inspired his artistic career.

     

    The badgers, foxes and voles that Walker witnesses in nature near his home in Dartmoor have inspired his masterful watercolours. Walker’s rare ability to give to each of the animals he depicts their unique characteristics and personas, while dressing them up in old cast off human garments never robs them of their intrinsic “animalness”.

     

    Although rooted in the heritage of English illustration it is Jonathan’s unerring draughtsmanship and his humour that nevertheless makes his work unmistakably contemporary. His pallet is true to the siennas and ochres of the real landscape, but his characters, however, are of the mould and grime of the soil, unsentimental and honest.
