Stretching canvas

Built canvases today. Got boards from the art store down the street and did the back-breaking work of stretching canvas onto them. I like to have full control over the quality of materials I use, so I don’t use pre-stretched canvases unless I’m messing around, experimenting.

Today I stretched 3 canvases, getting prepared for the Magic series. Solid boards and fine linen. I Still need to prime and sand them, but at least the hard part – the stretching – is finished.
