@TheGamesArtist Do you stretch your own canvasses? I found that it made a big difference. The shop bought canvasses are a lighter weight and they have a waxy titanium coating on the surface which affects the way that the paint adheres to it. I either buy the stretchers and build the frame myself, or take the canvas off a pre-built frame and put my own on. It's a much nicer ground to work with and you have control over the weight of the canvas, how taught it is, etc.

This shop is good for supplies. russellandchapple
