"Raymar’s Smooth Cotton Canvas is a versatile light tooth surface with a semi-absorbent quality. This surface has a nice drag for scumbling yet is smooth enough to allow the texture of a transparent brushstroke to show undisturbed by the weave. With this surface I can create a wide variety of soft and hard edges and the acrylic primer keeps the oils paints from getting sucked into the panel, keeping the work looking bright and fresh."
