A soft, subtle, foundation for the finest work. For sensitive watercolors, at Madison Art Shop we know the canvas must support the work properly and must also disappear once painted, so we searched for the perfect stretched watercolor canvas in the most popular size of nine inches by twelve inches. The stretched surface provides a smooth foundation for the most delicate of brushstrokes. It is the subtleties of form, which make watercolors so spectacular. The artist wishes the canvas to be a firm foundation for the work, resilient, present, but not invasive. This is why we say this particular canvas disappears, when a work is applied. The painted colors are true. The texture unobtrusive, and the result is spectacular. We highly recommend you try the Fredrix Stretched Watercolor Canvas - 9" x 12" for your most demanding work.
