Heather

At this year’s GWCT Scottish Game Fair, we will be hosting the auction of a stunning portrait of Heather, one of the golden eagles translocated by the South of Scotland Golden Eagle Project (SSGEP) in the summer of 2021.  This 24” x 20” canvas was created with digital painting techniques using Art Rage by Sue S Fulton.  Only one was printed to canvas [and would usually retail at £320].

Heather or F05 (the ring number given to this eagle), donated by Inverlael Estate, is a female golden eagle with unique white markings on her head.  As chicks, golden eagles are covered in white downy feathers which gradually drop out as they grow their juvenile plumage.  It became clear, as F05 grew older in the aviary, that she had a beautiful and unique pattern of white feathers - a supercilium stripe and a diamond shape on the back of her head.

SSGEP approach various groups, volunteers and supporters of the Project to ‘adopt’ and name each of the eagles that are translocated.  F05 was adopted and named Heather by members of the Southern Uplands Moorland Group (SUMG), founded in 2015.  SSGEP is really pleased by the support received from rural estates across the south of Scotland since the launch of the project.  Much of the food supplied to the eagles in the aviaries and after release (grey squirrels, rabbits, crows, foxes and deer) has been provided by local estates.

Sue Fulton, photographer and artist, is one of the SSSGEP’s Eagle Champions.  She was inspired by Heather’s unique markings to create a really stunning work of art that she generously donated to the Project to auction and raise funds. 

 

Artist’s Statement

Whilst her current work consists mainly of birds and especially birds of prey, it can include other animals and even florals.

Her work can be found at her website, www.SuesFulton.com or on her Facebook business page which is “Sues Fulton - Photography & Fine Art”
