Scottish Artist Angela Davidson is well known throughout the UK for her incredibly life-like animal art. Angela has also created a large giclee print range from her original artwork featuring various cattle breeds, horses, dogs and sheep. Her print range now numbers well over one-hundred-and-twenty individual animal prints.
With a flair for creating fabulous livestock art such as her Charolais bull Ringmaster and her stunning Aberdeen Angus bull Mr A, the potential customer is left in no doubt that this is one self-taught artist who has the ability not only to recreate true-to-life artwork, but also render that artwork as striking animal compositions.
Other cattle in Angela's print range include Hereford, Simmental and the Limousin breeds; each work of art, once again, rendered as true-to-life as realistic art can be.
Alongside her fabulous specimen bulls, Angela has also amassed a large selection of open and limited edition prints featuring commercial and pedigree cattle. Her subjects include Shorthorn, British Blue and Holstein cattle breeds, to name but a few. Also among Angela's best sellers are prints of Charolais, British Blonde and Aberdeen Angus calves. Last, but not least, there are always one or two Highland cattle pictures in Angela's collection; from wide horned Highland bulls to the same breed's shaggy cows and calves, there's always a hairy coo in the range.
Another of Angela's artistic passions is obvious when viewing her Equine Gallery. Horse prints are always well represented on the website. These include Welsh Cobs, as seen in her prints The Fire and Wild Fire, along with Connemara, warm blood, Irish sports horse and thoroughbred pictures.
Angela's fabulous Clydesdale horse artwork (one of which is being used to raise funds for her favoured charity: Great Ormond Street Childrens' Hospital) can also be seen in the Equine Gallery. A number of her heavy horse prints feature her son Lawrie with his Clydesdale friend Jake. Interestingly, one of the prints featuring Lawrie and Jake was used in Mary Bromilow's 2011 book titled The Clydesdale: Workhorse of the World.
The Dog Gallery on Angela's website is home to some very striking canine pictures. A large number of dog breeds are featured in both open and limited edition prints, from old favourites like black, yellow and chocolate labradors, border terriers and Jack Russell, through to the less common breeds such as miniature schnauzers, basset hounds and Scottish deer hounds.
For the hunting community, Angela has also created some impressive game pictures. Her red stag print Challenger depicts a rutting stag in all his glory, while her grouse print Featherweight Championship describes the antics of two lecking black grouse.This minimalist artwork is an excellent example of an artist displaying how sometimes less-is-more.
In a more relaxed pose is Bobby Dazzler, Angela's wonderfully arty interpretation of a cock pheasant. In this print we see the artist's intrinsic ability to turn a very traditional game bird subject into a cutting edge artistic statement. The use of a black background – a distinctive feature of Angela's artwork since 2006 – only adds extra vibrancy to this colourful bird print.
The more exotic creatures which roam our planet have also recently begun to appear in Angela's print collection. Creatures such as her astonishing Asian Tiger portrait Burning Bright shows that this talented artist has more in her arsenal than just domesticated cows, horses, dogs and sheep.
Angela also has a large variety of specialist sheep breeds from which to choose. For her specimen rams she selects the models carefully, using only championship winning stock. While her sheep flock compositions also reflect the great care taken in choosing the subjects in these more relaxed studies. The Sheep Gallery also features a large diversity of breeds: from the classic Scottish black-face through to the more unusual features of the Suffolk, beltex, texel and blue-faced Leicester sheep varieties.
Print Quality Angela's print range is manufactured to her own specifications in the workshops which are part of her gallery. She and her husband insist on working to their own high standards as opposed to letting cost dictate the quality of the reproductions which leave their workshops. Therefore, when you buy a print from Angela Davidson Art, you can be assured you will not only be receiving a reproduction of the highest quality, but also one which has passed the ultimate test and gained the blessing of the artist.
Angela Davidson's print range is only reproduced on Somerset Enhanced Velvet Fine Art Paper, which is manufactured at St Cuthbert's Mill, Wells, Somerset.
