More Information

Cowling & Wilcox Artist Canvas is made from 1.6cm thick lightweight spruce wood and 100% pure cotton. This medium grain pre-stretched canvas is ideal for use with all forms of acrylic and oil, as well as many other mixed media applications.

What is a stretched canvas?

When it comes to artist canvas, stretched canvas is one of the most popular types among amateur and professional artists alike. Stretched canvas is exactly what it says on the tin - the canvas material is stretched out over wooden supports to give the surface a satisfying tension to work on with a variety of artist mediums, including oil paint and acrylics. Even with a heavily loaded paint brush, this stretched canvas from Cowling & Wilcox will remain taut and secure for the duration of your painting. Artist stretched canvases allow eager artists to get straight to work on their inspirations, with no time-consuming canvas stretching required.

What does triple primed canvas mean?

While you can purchase and prime your cotton or stretched canvas yourself, this is not always necessary. Primer is best applied in thin layers to quicken the drying time and to provide a more even surface to paint on. The majority of pre-primed canvases are triple primed canvases, which simply means that the surface is covered by three thin layers of primer, ensuring the best painting experience for the artist, whatever medium they are working with. This rectangular triple primed canvas has a surface that is fully prepared for the artist to begin creating.

What is cotton canvas?

It can be hard to know what material canvas you want, from cotton to linen and rougher materials. Cotton canvas, like this Cowling & Wilcox canvas, has the benefits of balancing durability and affordability. The material lends itself well to being stretched tight, meaning that cotton canvas will last a considerable amount of time. The value for money and lightweight quality of cotton canvas means that they are especially popular among student artists. If you are looking to create much larger paintings, you may want to choose a heavier and stronger material, like linen canvas.

Our pre-stretched Artist Canvas is available in 16 sizes, ranging from 8 x 8" to 60 x 40". The rectangular canvas has a weight of 350gsm, is primed with three layers of gesso primer and is also acid free, ensuring that your paint colours retain their vibrancy. Incredible value for money, ideal for beginners and student artists.

Good quality canvas, all square but one out of 20 found to have exposed staple beneath one corner of the canvas giving visible bump on side to be painted. These mass produced canvases may have defects in the wooden frame where attached at the corners. Thick oil paint should cover up on the canvas face. Very good price and C&W would probably have replaced if I requested but at 1.45 each hardly worth the trouble.
