I enjoy painting on acrylic or oil primed linen boards, or Senso unbleached linen canvases. For a less expensive option, I use masonite boards. I apply a thin coat of acrylic gesso, and another thin layer of a warm white latex house paint. This surface is wonderful to paint on- I highly recommend it. You are more than welcome to bring your preferred surface. (I do recommend that you know how your surface will perform!)
Canvas : Please bring one large board (no larger than 16x20) to be sectioned for several small works. Bring 3 small canvases per day, (less if you work more slowly) but keep them on the small side. Ex: 8x10, 9x11, 11x14, no larger.
