BACK AND SIDES OF STRETCHED WATERCOLOR ON CANVAS:
Here is back and side image of what my stretched Watercolors look like over Canvas. A second reason why I stretch over canvas, besides strength, is neat clean lines: no staples, no folded corner. Just the way I like them.
Currently I am stretching some of my older Paintings that have never been framed, and therefore, never shown. So they are almost all on 140 lbs. Arches Cold Press. But am going to try stretching some raw 156 lb. and raw 300 lb. very soon, so that I'll know what I'll face prior to stretching this weight Of Painting. Will let you know further how these come out once they are finished.
