Oil on Primed Canvas Texture
The Artist Panel Primed Canvas Texture is a perfect choice for oil painters that want all the benefits of a panel but enjoy painting on a surface with a traditional canvas texture.
Oil painters enjoy panel painting because light reflects off the flat surface resulting in brighter colors. The rigid surface allows for more brush control and detail work as there is no bounce or movement like on flexible surfaces. The strong MDF panel holds up to thick applications of paint and is great for palette-knife painting, plein air, and multimedia applications.

Primed Canvas Texture works with all oil painting mediums and techniques. It has a consistent patterned texture that grabs paint for a strong bond and shows through thin applications like a fine canvas. The non-absorbent acrylic gesso surface maintains the slower drying time with oils, allowing artists more time to apply glazes and manipulate their paints.
Primed Canvas Texture is ready to use, no need to mount canvas or add endless layers of gesso. Artists spend more time creating, and less time prepping a surface.
