Winsor & Newton Artists’ Linen Canvas:
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”.
Why choose Winsor & Newton Artists’ Linen Canvas?
Having a triple primed weight of 13oz/375gsm, Winsor & Newton Artists’ Linen Canvas provides a premium support for professional artists. This canvas is stretched by hand and, like every canvas in the Winsor & Newton range, is supplied with corner wedges to achieve extra tension, if required.
