    1. My limited experience with linen is that it’s a smoother texture with a tighter weave, but both linen and cotton canvas can come in a variety of weave sizes and patterns. I use the Centurion linen panels from Jerry’s Artarama. Linen normally costs more than canvas, but the small panels are affordable. It looks like right now a 12 pack of the 5″x7″ panels in the oil primed version are less than a dollar per panel. 🙂

    1. Yeah a lot of small brushes were used for the details. 🙂
      I’ve used two brands of linen panels and it seems to be a smoother texture with a tighter weave, but both linen and cotton canvas come in a different weave sizes and patterns.

Linen normally costs more than canvas, but these small panels are affordable enough to come out as less one dollar per panel if you get a 12 pack.

  1. Love how you’ve ‘caught’ the soft summer light, or I should say, how the summer light softens colours, turning them to pastels. Beautiful.
