Hello, I hope someone can help me with this, I’ll try to be as clear as possible: I don’t have a lot of storage space in my home to have stretched canvas paintings pilling up, so to save space I buy rolled canvas, cut my own sizes, and then tape the canvas to a work-board and begin painting, this taped off area will ultimately be the border, and the finished painting saves me space. I have sold a few of these paintings, once dry I’ll adhere the painting to treated hardboard or ply (with archival glue of course), and it’s out the door. My question is this; how much of a white border should I leave around the painting? I have to assume that at some point the purchaser will want to get it framed, and the person doing the framing would want some wiggle room, rather than covering up part of the painting. I’ve included a picture in case I didn’t explain that properly. Thank you
That's a fantastic painting. Well done
