    Favourite Canvas To Use

    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.
