Hey guys,

Just wondering what canvas you guys like to use when doing oil painting and watercolour painting? Maybe you would like to say about what type of paint / pen / pencil works well with what paper?

For oils most of the time i like the default 'smooth canvas' preset that ships with artrage. I find the amount of texture on this one to be perfect for the paint to spread around without getting the nasty little goops that happen on a smooth page.

For watercolour I use the custom seamless watercolour paper (called WP_parchment) i've included in my 'traditional media surfaces' arpack available in the art supplies section. I like this paper as it works will with the water colour to create nice bleed at the edges.
