Canvas & Supports

Choosing A Surface

There are many surfaces to paint on: canvas, linen and wood to name a few. Each surface has it's own characteristics and advantages. Stretched canvas and Birch Panels cut down on prep work involved in preparing a surface. Rollstock canvas is available for artists who prefer to prime and stretch their own canvasses. Masonite, canvas panels and pads are suitable for smaller works and are an economical choice for practice pieces or for plein air painters wanting something compact and lightweight.

Stretched Canvas

Artist QuaLity | Made in Canada


Pre-stretched artist canvasses are made with 100% cotton canvas, double primed with acrylic gesso and back stapled onto beveled stretcher bars. Larger sizes are properly braced for extra support. Available in Standard 3/4" and Profile 1.5" depths.


Birch Panels

Artist QuaLity | Made in Canada


3mm Russian birch  surface cradled onto 7/8" (standard) or 1 5/8" (profile) frames. Panels are unprimed and have a smooth grain.  Ideal for artists wanting a smooth and/or non-flexible support.

Birch Panel

Stretcher Bars

Kiln Dried Basswood | Standard & Profile


Beveled, tongue & groove, basswood Stretcher Bars available in 3/4" & 1.5" depths. Ideal for artists wanting to stretch their own canvas. Crossbracing is recommended for canvasses larger than 30" in order to prevent warping.

Inglewood Art sells Winsor & Newton Professional Grade Canvas Boards and Apollon- Gotrick Masonite Panels. Canvas boards and masonite panels are great surfaces to paint on. They are lightweight and compact, making them a favorite amongst plein air painters and students on the go. Inglewood Art recommends that paintings done on canvas boards or masonite panels be framed to prevent damage and warping. Canvas panels are pre-primed. We also recommended coating masonite panels with Gloss Medium prior to priming in order to prevent Support Induced Discoloration.
