class schedules
or projects.
SURFACES......
For Pen & Ink with
Oil Rouging
I always suggest FREDRIX ,
MEDIUM GRADE, with a red label
canvas panels
,  shown below.











Authentic acid free acrylic
titanium primed artist canvas
mounted on heavy board.  
Popular for student projects
because of moderate cost and
portability.  Suitable for oil or
acrylic painting. All panels are
completely turned and glued to
prevent fraying and separation.  
All you do is pop it into a frame...
that simple!!!

***Fredrix Canvas Panels as
shown above are my preference.
 
Basically, any
Fredrix Medium
Grade
panel, stretched canvas,
rolled canvas and even canvas
pads are reliable, easy to ink and
rouge on and are easy on your
brushes.

Or, another choice to purchase at
Hobby Lobby is the Master's
Touch panel.  Although it is a bit
rough it is suitable.









Normally I would never suggest
purchasing a portrait smooth
texture canvas, however, at
Hobby Lobby there is a stretched
canvas that is acceptable,
purchase only if you do not intend
to use a matt.  
The name is
Master’s Touch Gallery
Collection, Medium Texture
Cotton Duck, Extra Smooth
Texture (gold label)
.
Both "Pen & Ink with Oil Rouging" and "Colored Pencil" Classes Available
