Winton Oil Colour Paper is popular for those sketching both outdoors and in the studio and for artists who prefer using paper to canvas. It is also liked by professionals for its texture and drag. Contrary to hearsay advice, using paper is acceptable for oil painting.
Using these economic paper pads is ideal for those starting out with oil colour as well as for testing pieces or parts of pieces for the more experienced. Please note that the oil colour does take longer to dry than on a traditional canvas
A good alternative to canvas
I am delighted with these canvas textured pads. The sheets take the oil paint very well, and, when dry, can be stored as easily as water colour paintings. Sheets take up so much less space than canvases or even canvas boards. I stick a sheet on a drawing board with masking tape before use. If I wish to frame the finished picture, when dry, it can be put in a standard frame behind a sheet of Perspex or glass. They are slightly thinner than the Daler Rowney pads, but with a slightly smoother surface. Highly recommended.
