Which canvas should I use?
I'm not sure which canvas to use for the tropical waterfall picture below. I'm trying to decide between the Fredrix oil primed linen canvas (double-primed) and the Paris oil primed linen canvas which is triple-primed. Both are said to produce good results with oil paint but I'm not sure which one to use. The Paris oil primed linen canvas is described as having a surface conducive for a luminous effect and I'm wondering would this be the ideal canvas for the luminous colors of the attached picture. The picture has light shining through a leaf in the picture and vivid streams of light reflecting in the water and I'm wondering if the Paris oil primed linen canvas would be the best one to use considering it's luminous surface. The Fredrix oil primed canvas is said to be ideal for smooth blending. Both seem to be ideal canvases. I just don't know which one is the best for this picture. Please comment.
