True 5:4 Photography Proportion - 4x5 Size

The 5:4 aspect ratio is common to both art and portrait photography, as it creates a visually pleasing format for the human figure and face. The balanced compositional format can help to create a sense of symmetry and harmony in your artwork. The 5:4 ratio has a familiar "feel", as it was commonly used in early computer monitors. Additionally, you might consider trying some relatively unknown sizes in this same proportion that we call Lost Sizes As an artist, you get the best of both worlds, because you still get to use the same aesthetically appealing 5:4 format and use rare or novel sizes that help make your art stand-out.

Poitiers™ Portriat Smooth Oil Primed Artfix Linen

Our smoothest oil primed linen canvas. It is a heavy weight linen with a captivating warm golden hue tone.

  • 100% Belgian Linen 6.2 oz.; Primed Weight 14.1 oz. per square yard
  • Meidum Weight, Fine Weave, Portrait Smooth Texture
  • Double Sized and Quadruple Primed with acid-free archival quality oil primed ground
  • Impenetrable ground prevents oil paint from leaching through and harming the canvas
  • For oils, alkyds, and water miscible oil paints
  • Linen has natural oils that prevent disintegration over time.

Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) Primer Pigment

This primer contains premium-grade Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) white pigment, renowned for its exceptional performance for oil priming. Its standout feature is its enduring whiteness, coupled with remarkable flexibility that persists over time. In contrast to other pigments such as zinc dioxide, Titanium Dioxide maintains its resilience, preventing brittleness as it ages. This quality ensures that artworks retain their integrity and will stand the test of time.

Artfix Poitiers™ Portrait Smooth Belgian Linen offers a luxurious surface, ideal for highly detailed work. Preferred by portrait artists because it is so smooth for linen. Due to the nature of how flax plants are turned into linen textiles, there may be variations in yarn thickness thereby creating fabric that is individual in nature and has character. There can be infrequent naturally occurring nubs in the linen which may yield small slight bumps where the linen is a little thicker than the rest of the strand. This is normal and part of what gives linen its character.

Oil paint on an oil primed canvas improves your results

Using an oil prepared canvas for oil painting can produce superior results because the paint and ground are organically similar and create an ideal "chemical bond" where the paint sinks into the ground resulting in a smoother and more even finish. The resulting bond between the paint and canvas is stronger, making the artwork more durable and long-lasting. Additionally, the melding of the two oil-based materials creates an effect called luminosity, where the colors appear to glow from within, and thereby enhances the vibrancy and brightness of the colors, impacting the way light reflects off the colors.

Flash an Oil Prepared Canvas with Mineral Spirits

While it is not required, for best results, lightly wipe or flash the oil prepared canvas with mineral spirits before painting to make sure that your surface is completely clean of any dust or contaminants before painting.


Our Hardcore Pro Pro Canvas Panels are the flattest on the market. They are made using MDF (medium density fiberboard) which is the highest quality engineered wood board on the market. Moisture in the board can cause undesirable results to the panel and your artwork, which is why we size the board with four layers on the front before the canvas is mounted, thereby defending against moisture getting into the board and underneath your artwork.

Canvas Panels should be as flat as possible, otherwise, they don't display well in a frame, and can create spaces between the artwork and the frame. A bowed panel is also a sign of having been impacted by the effect of moisture. Canvas can shrink, even after it is mounted on the board. For this reason, Masterpiece® developed a unique proprietary process that stress-relieves each panel, thereby virtually eliminating the bow that is commonly found in competing panel products. Hardcore Pro Canvas Panels provide a stable foundation for your art.

One may produce at will, by illuminations of intense brightness, any color desired. ♦ Francisco de Goya

Francisco de Goya, one of the most celebrated painters of the Spanish Golden Age, was no stranger to manipulating light and shadow in his art. His works, often drenched in dramatic contrasts, pushed boundaries and posed questions about society and human nature. This insight into illuminations of intense brightness hints at more than just pigments on canvas; it speaks to the transformative power of creativity. When given the right environment and energy, we can bring to life a vast spectrum of emotions and ideas.

Imagine a vast room of artists, each with a canvas. We all have the same colors, yet it's how we illuminate our subjects that sets our works apart. Goya's play on brightness and color echoes the essence of innovation. With a twist here, a bold stroke there, or perhaps even a whimsical flick of the wrist, we turn the mundane into the extraordinary. Goya's life, filled with tumultuous turns, from illness to witnessing war's horrors, only amplified his command over vivid representations.

Celebrating the creativity in all of us, we've taken a step provide these words of wisdom and to immortalize Francisco de Goya through our own unique portrait. Pick up your brush and create!
