New Oil Painting On Linen

15 Apr

Hello Everyone;

This is an original oil painting I just finished.  Up to now, all of my oil paintings have been on cotton canvas either a panel or stretched.  Cotton is a very good support and probably the most popular, but the most archival canvas is linen.

Linen has a tighter weave for a bit smoother look to it and it stays tight on the stretcher bars.  It does not sag like cotton can from time to time.

This painting is a 16" X 20"  landscape painting.  I love this linen support.  For some reason, the paint just seemed to glide onto it.  I have a few more linen canvases so I intent to keep on experimenting and seeing if possibly, linen will be my new favorite support.

Have A Blessed Day
