Painting on Wood

Canvas tends to be the ideal medium for the majority of artists, but wood and/or hardboard provides an alternative for the artist to explore another medium and explore new techniques. Canvas works beautifully for acrylic, which when dry, is very flexible but doesn't always seem fit for mixed media such as oil paint, which is prone to cracking. Using wood has many pros, such as the smooth surface in which paint easily glides, making blending color easy and tiny details perfectible. If weight is an issue, wood may not be a suitable option. With that being said, a canvas will be about double the cost of a wood panel of equal size. With minimal cons, disadvantages may include the potential for stains, warping, and rotting. However, there are easy fixes to prevent these flaws, such as applying 2 coats of acrylic to seal the wood once that is completely dry and prime before painting. If you are using wood for the first time, a great first choice would be masonite, also known as hardboard, which can be found at a local hardware store and provides all the pros with fewer cons.
