The famous blank canvas, so much more than just a piece of art equipment; its whole essence has become a symbol of potential, possibility and boundless creativity. With such value being placed upon it you are most certainly rewarded for making sure you get the best start with a good quality canvas.
And as any artist who knows a thing or two will tell you, a properly prepared canvas with the right tension, durability and texture can make or break a painting. Winsor and Newton know this all too well and drawing on their 185 years of experience manufacturing high quality art goods have developed two brand new ranges of hand stretched canvases.
These expertly prepared canvases have recently arrived here at The Art Shop Skipton and are already proving very popular with lots of our customers. They certainly stand out from many other canvases in the crowd, the highest quality finishes, primed with pigment rich gesso make these acid-free, smooth, archival cloths beautifully responsive to every brushstroke.
The Classic Range
These fantastic canvases come in two different ranges classic and professional. Both are constructed with lighter weight and vigorously tested kiln dried stretcher bars for strength, tailored uncut corners (so there is extra cloth if you need it), amazingly balanced absorbency and tooth to give unrivalled adhesion and colour vitality and come in an assortment of sizes and depths.
The Proffesional Range
The classic range is available in versatile cotton and the finest texture linen. The professional range also includes strong and durable poly-cotton and the astonishingly fine weave cotton- smooth, ideal for detailed work and portrait painting.
But where the professional range really comes into its own is through its pioneering tension technology - The unique Winsor & Newton pro-stretcher™. This handy little device makes achieving the perfect surface tension a doddle. Simply pop a pro-stretcher into each corner and use a screwdriver to easily tighten to perfection. Strong, sleek and compact, the days of the hammered wooden stretcher bar key might be numbered.
