A blank canvas symbolises the beginning of a creative journey. We sell canvas made from linen, cotton and jute. Jute is made from vegetable fibre and when woven to make canvas create a coarse weave that is well suited to rich, impasto applications of colour. Cotton and linen tend to have a more subtle weave and is a perfect support for a wide variety of paint, anything from splashes of watercolour-like ink to sculptural and buttery oil. Cotton is made with shorter fibres which means the fabric tends to be less tough than linen but still possesses a degree of elasticity so that it can be stretched. Linen is more elastic and is available in a variety of weaves. The choice available will suit painting ideas of every kind.
