10" x 10"
Inbetween napping and toasting myself by the fire today, I put in a little time in the studio to see if I could get this clementine finished. And I think I did. I'll let it sit and dry and see if any additions are needed, then its good to go.
I've been doing some research on support to paint on with oils. The types on offer vary considerably from manufacturer to manufacturer. I've used a number of brands, from Winsor & Newton to Fredrix mostly, as they are available here, but I'm in the market for some new ones and think I'll give RayMar panels a try. They have a range of cotton and linen canvasses and offer sample packages for sale which will make choosing much easier. I wish all manufacturers offered samples, I'm quite willing to pay for them and not looking for handouts. As long as the panels are professional quality, I'll be happy.
I tend to like panels more than stretched canvas, although I do use gallery canvas to get around the framing issues at times. The panels provide a sturdy surface that's not as prone to damage.
What supports do you use for oil paint? Panels or stretched canvas? Do you have a favourite brand?
