Your working Surface can have a big impact on the Artwork you CREATE
Did you know? If you gesso timber panels the colours you use will be brighter as they aren’t being absorbed into the working surface.
Whether you are a professional artist or a newbie, having a wide variety of surfaces is a must in any studio space. In today’s art supplies market there are many to choose from. You have your standard traditional stretched canvases that come in a range of square and rectangle sizes and then you have the more modern canvas circle. Canvases are great as a creative surface as they are very versatile and this is one of the many reasons they are so widely used throughout the world. Canvases don’t need to be stretched either as canvas boards/panels are just as popular as a creative surface.
If working on a canvas isn’t your surface of choice most art supply stores now stock a range of timber panels. These can be framed with an edge or not. These to are very versatile; you can simply glue, paint, print, and use just about any medium on them as a raw surface or with gesso. If you want to draw on your timber panel with charcoal, pencil or pastel the Colourfix texture gesso gives you great colour options and the tooth (texture) you will require for your medium to stick.
A proper painting surface prep is one of the most important factors to getting high quality results. It doesn’t matter how big or small the painting will be, proper surface prep sets the level for success and longevity of your art work.
What type of surface do you prefer to work on, canvas linen, artists paint board, a branded Fredrix canvas, circular canvas or a wood canvas? There is variety upon variety of possibilities and each has its qualities designed to accept and properly support specific mediums. If you are not sure of which one to use or choice seems complicated, you are in the right place.
