What Is Canvas?

Traditionally manufactured from hemp, for its tough fibres, Canvas is now primarily produced from either linen or cotton. Linen Canvas is a premium alternative to Cotton Canvas, and has finer strands, producing a highly intricate weave, with a regular pattern. 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”.

It's a good, but not great, canvas, but that's reflected in the price. It needed re-tightening, but that is normal. The surface is good with no blemishes. Well primed, medium grained. Exactly as expected.

I expected the grain to be finer

Have not used it yet (hence only 4 stars), but it looks to be good quality and just what I wanted. Hopefully I'll decide it warrants 5 stars when I get going with it.
