Please follow my new blog: Richard Baker Contemporary Art
I have begun to transfer my love of colour and texture by developing a range of canvas art for all types of interiors.
I am introducing 'Celestial I & II' - 2 unique pieces 70 x 130cm each that work as individual pieces or as a pair. You can have either piece to the left or right of each other - whatever works best for you!
These are very special pieces as they are a pair of high quality wooden panel boards rather than just linen stretched over a stretcher frame.
There is obviously a lot more weight to these two pieces compared to the weight of just using high end stretcher bars with quality linen or cotton canvas wrapped around.
I have used acrylics, texture paste, silver leaf, metallic silver and rose gold spray.
I have completed the pieces with some Matt Varnish for some added extra protection.
The sides and the back of each canvas board are painted in matching light grey with a matching grey finishing tape. Fixings are also attached.
I will be issuing signed Certificates of Authentication and an Insurance valuation for each piece on purchase. I will obviously sign and date each artwork too.
These pieces are inspired by astronomy and my love for exotic seascapes - because my new collection of work is abstract based, you can interpret it how you wish.
My aim is to adorn your interior space with exceptional, unique, one-off original artwork!

Adobe Photoshop Textile Designer Extension (Beta)
I am really enjoying experimenting with the Beat version of the Adobe Photoshop Textile Designer extension - probably best to watch some videos first so you can dive straight in with experimentations: https://www.adobe.com/uk/products/textiledesigner.html#x
I really prefer Illustrator to design my creations, but if I want to design a series of patterns quickly, still being able to keep my colours and layers separated and more...then I will use this Photoshop extension in the future.
A mentioned above I still prefer to use Illustrator for my best work - maybe Adobe could create exactly the same extension for Illustrator - I know there is the Pattern Maker already, but using exactly the same interface would then be so seamless when going from one title to another.
