Canvas Sheets

We sell individual sheets of canvas from canvas pads in order to make them more affordable.

The sheets are genuine 7oz artist canvas, primed with gesso and ready for use with any medium. They are sturdy enough to be mounted when dry.

Charcoal

Charcoal is a very responsive, expressive medium to work in.

Willow charcoal (Coates) gives you a soft grey line that is easily blended, Pitt charcoal is compressed and makes dark marks that are difficult to smudge whereas pastel pencils can be sharpened to a fine tip for really detailed work.

Coloured Pencils

The humble coloured pencil has been the starting point for so many children, but the medium can also be a very 'grown up' and sophisticated medium too. Many artists love how you can layer and still maintain detail - and it's not messy.

Watercolour pencil sets really break the boundaries between drawing and painting - the best of both worlds?

Cotman Watercolours

The Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolour range has a more uniform consistency than the Artists' Watercolour range, and this benefits beginners as there is less to learn about how each individual pigment behaves.

They are made to the same high quality standards as the Winsor & Newton Artist's Watercolours, but costs are kept to an economical level by replacing some of the more costly pigments with less expensive alternatives. 

Cotman Watercolours possess good transparency, excellent tinting strength and good working properties

DAS Exhibition canvases

DAS Exhibition canvases are manufactured using the finest materials available to create an economically priced product. They have been developed to ensure a stable structure with a medium weight, medium grain canvas to meet the needs of many different painting techniques.

The wooden frame is constructed using a warp resistant timber which has been stored for six months under natural conditions. The wood is then soaked, degreased and kiln dried to ensure the firm structure of the frame.

The fabric is primed three times with an acid free acrylic ground (known as acrylic gesso). This seals and protects the canvas creating a receptive surface for the paint to adhere to.
