I have only painted on canvas once, and i happen to have a piece i am working on now on a nice wrapped canvas. But truth be told, i LOVE painting on wood, well primed of course. Just have gotten so acquainted and enamored of the smoothness of wood.
And I have learned to make cradles for each of my paintings, so I avoid the matting and framing thing. Just a nice cradle, painted black, and voila....ready to hang.
I use mostly Golden Open Acrylics these days.....
