Daniel has a unique process based on creating digital assets and final artworks using Auto CAD. For this project Daniel spent many hours at The Louvre building his library of digital assets and then integrating them into his printing files. Once printed on canvas he paints to complete the artwork. We have been taking the opportunity to gain experience printing using the superb Ilford Galerie Prestige Canvas Natural 340gsm. As many of you will know we have stopped printing on canvas because we didn't enjoy the results. However, Daniel's process requires canvas and we thought it was time to confront our canvas demon.
Ilford state that Canvas Natural is a cotton/polyester blend canvas with a matt surface and natural tint with no added optical brightening agents in the coating layer offering stunning colour reproduction thanks to a wide colour gamut that enhances rich colours and provides deep, dense blacks. Ideal for Daniels requirements.
Over two days we printed 24 meters of canvas, the results were outstanding. Daniel is now on a beach somewhere adding the final touches to his work, we are looking forward to seeing the final result.
