The Winsor & Newton Artists' Canvas Board gives a flat hard surface suitable for oil or acrylics. More portable and very popular for al fresco painting, these canvas boards are made by laminating cotton canvas onto board.
They are stretched by hand for correct tension with tailored corners and are triple coated with one coat of acid free sizing and two coats of highly pigmented primer. This helps to give the boards a balanced absorbency and tooth which prevents sinking of oil colours and improves adhesion. The medium grain surface is suitable for all techniques including heavier applications of colour.
