Learn About Art Canvases
On behalf or tvlesson.com my name is Angeline Marie. I'm a professional artist with Angelinemarie.net. In this clip, we’re going to learn a little bit about canvasses. I have four different canvases with me. I have this first type has this staples along the side. If you notice this is a canvas that has to be framed, you can’t’ just hang it on the wall. Now the good thing about these canvasses the white wood on the back, so this is stretched very nicely on this wood. But again, if it has staples on the edges you have to frame this canvass.
The second kind of canvass that you can buy is this one, is the same thing on the front, it’s just the blank canvass. The difference is that the sides do not have a staple. The staples are on the back. This is nicely finished on the inside, it’s tapped in, you have the nice white wood and it’s nice and tight. It’s a very, very good canvas to work with.
The advantage of this canvass you don’t have to frame it. You can paint around the edges and put it on the wall. Now this one is a three quarters depth, it’s good not to frame it but there’s an even better width that you can use. This one is what they call an inch enough deep. It has no staples, very nice and tight and you don’t have to frame this one. I am at the habit of painting the edges but an artist can either leave them white, paint them all black or brown and not have to frame this canvass.
The best canvass to buy is this one, you have the staples along the back it’s nicely stretched and you have the middle wood to support all the sides. And that’s just a little bit about canvass and what the purchase.
