Demonstration: The Canvas Road Show continued...

Prior to any major trip, I purchase a full roll of preprimed preprimed linen, 52" wide x 6' in length. The following "tall drink of water" is a diagram depicting a computer file I generated based on a full, uncut roll. I like the flexibility of painting in various sizes. So here you can see how all the sizes are arranged for maximum economy from the roll -- before I cut anything!

You'll notice each designated canvas size has 2" added around the perimeter to allow for wrapping/tacking to stretcher bars before framing.

In this case, I had a large studio painting to do as well, so I built it into the plan. Many artists do this to save time, money and drastically reduces errors. It also confirms the benefit of taking geometry and math in school ;)
