For the artist who prefers oil primed linen with some texture.
This sample set includes three 5x7 oil primed linen panels curated for the artist that likes a little texture to their painting surface. Ideal for most landscape artists. In this set you can compare two styles of oil priming, Claessens versus Artfix. All linens are exclusively for oil paint.

Claessens C15SP: Medium texture, irregular weave linen with a single layer of oil priming. Ideal for landscapes.
Claessens C15DP: The same weave of linen as C15SP but with two layers of oil priming for a smoother surface. Ideal for landscapes or portraits.
Artfix L21C: The same linen weave as L22U except with one layer of Artfix's “lead-like” oil primer. The primer acts like lead minus the toxicity and has a unique absorbency that allows paint to “bite” into the surface.
