The Product: Fine art Partridge print digital Giclée
This was artist Talia Giles’s second portrait from her ‘Great British Birds’ collection (after the pheasant) and is particularly close to her heart. A covey of these birds, with their distinctive, colourful plumage, roamed the gardens and woodlands of her childhood home. This digital fine art partridge print is one of a growing collection of Great British Birds & Wildlife designed by the artist and amongst whom number the Hare and the Pheasant, both available through us at Telescope Style.
Talia starts with a series of photographs of each animal which she then combines and manipulates to create the perfect portrait pose, almost humanlike. Next, she digitally draws a complex net of triangles which form the base of the geometric image. Smaller, denser collections of triangles are used where more detail is required. Once the net is complete, each and every triangle is coloured individually to add depth, light and shade. Finally, background colours are trialled to set the mood and allow the character to come alive. On close inspection, these digital artworks are breathtaking in their detail.
These wildlife prints look equally striking in an industrial, urban loft setting as in a ‘modern-rustic’, rural abode. Depending on your backdrop, you may want to choose a pale frame to in effect ‘disappear’. A modern, white frame against the mount and white/pale walls will, for example, allow the partridge’s image to leap out from the wall. Alternatively, you may opt to outline the artwork with a strong line to create definition or a boundary between the partridge and, say, a busy all-over wallpaper. If this is your preference, go for a slim, warm-hued wooden frame to enhance the artwork’s earthy palette.
