What Is Canvas?

Traditionally manufactured from hemp, for its tough fibres, Canvas is now primarily produced from either linen or cotton. Cotton Canvas provides an inexpensive alternative to Linen Canvas which has finer strands, producing a highly intricate weave. Cotton Duck Canvas is most commonly used for painting with oil colour.

How do I choose a Canvas?

Canvas is graded according to weight and tightness of weave. Ranging from 1 to 12, a low number indicates a coarse grain, whereas the finest grains are represented by the highest numbers. Often, canvas is simply graded as “Coarse”, “Medium” and “Fine”.

Pleased with the canvas, obviously a quality product, especially with the mechanism to tighten the canvas. My only personal reservation was that the canvas itself was that it is not fine enough for my preferred method of painting, so a few coats of gesso were required.
