Canvas Boards and Panels

Traditional stretched linen and other types of canvases have their place and use. But, as a beginner or artist on a budget and traveling, there's no denying that they are much pricier and a bit more awkward to carry around. If you're looking for a lightweight, budget-friendly option with the same qualities as a stretched canvas, our canvas panels and canvas boards will be perfect for you.

In addition to being lightweight, there are many reasons why an artist might prefer canvas panels, such as:

  • Stretched canvas can often become loose and require re-stretching, primarily when you ship or travel with panels through locations with different climates. Well-made canvas panels should never come loose.
  • Stretched canvas can host its difficulties when it comes time to mount squarely on stretcher bars. Canvas panels are more accessible as they don't require DIY know-how and are always cut evenly.
  • Stretched canvas can move with brush strokes, vibrations, and changes in temperature, causing disturbance to layers of paint over time and even causing eventual cracks. A canvas panel or canvas boards are much more durable and stable.
  • A canvas panel is ultra-portable for Plein air paintings. Plus, the light won't shine through them from behind during your outdoor painting sessions.
  • Stretched canvases are a bit delicate in that they can be punctured easily if not handled, shipped, or stored easily. Canvas panels are far more durable in this regard.

Whether you're looking for today's top trusted brands such as Strathmore, or our very own Joe's Prime Canvas panels, we'll have the right canvas boards for you here.
