What does Primed canvas mean?

                         Many budding artists begin their canvas art in a cheaper one because there are many high-quality canvases to work in future. But to know how it works you can go with the cheaper ones, but it will not help you always. To enjoy the true pleasure of canvas painting you must go to some extents of buying a good primed canvas. Primed Stretched canvas will be your best friend. Canvases are primed with double or triple layered gesso or acrylic gesso. You can try working on wooden canvas boards in future. But right now, you need to focus on the available canvases.

                          In all the art stores you can find primed canvasses but you need to find the best in market. Unprimed canvases would rumble or wark while using oil or acrylic paints. Always do some research, not only in canvas, whatever you do research will always guide you in a best way. I made my list of using the canvases in a regular practice. Only then I understood the beauty of canvases. Comes in variable cute sizes and large sizes.
