True 3:2 Film Proportion - 4x6 Size

The 3:2 aspect ratio is a very familiar format film, computer screens, and video, and, of course, is an aesthetically appealing proportion for your artistic compositions. Most 35 mm film cameras are based on this exact proportion, so our brains are trained to see images in this same ratio. It is commonly used for landscape photography and artwork, as it allows for a wide, panoramic view of the scene. It can be used to create a sense of balance and harmony in the composition, providing depth and perspective, as the longer sides of the canvas allow for more space to depict the background or foreground elements of the scene.

Even though this proportion is widely used, there are only a handful of commonly available standard canvas sizes in this ratio. There are a whole collection of intriguing (what we call) Lost Sizes, which are uncommon sizes in this common proportion. Unusual canvas sizes add intrigue to your artwork and an additional story to tell about your painting.

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

  • 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.

A picture is nothing but a bridge between the soul of the artist and that of the spectator. ♦ Euge_ne Delacroix

Eugé ne Delacroix, a dominant figure of the 19th-century French Romanticism movement, was no stranger to the emotional weight and power of art. He believed in art's capacity to transcend mere visual aesthetics and touch the very core of human emotion. Delacroix's canvases, characterized by their dramatic subjects and vigorous brushwork, were more than just depictions; they were conversations, silent yet profound, between the creator and the viewer.

This perspective serves as a reminder of the intimate relationship we establish with our audience every time we create. In our art career, it's not merely about creating images, sculptures, or installations; it's about building connections. Each stroke, each hue, and each form is a piece of us, a fragment of our experiences, beliefs, and feelings. When spectators engage with our work, they aren't just viewing a piece of art; they're stepping onto that bridge Delacroix speaks of, walking towards understanding and shared emotion. As artists, it's our privilege to invite them onto this bridge, encouraging them to traverse it and find pieces of our soul intertwined with their own.

With an artist's spirit and a modern touch, we bring you this hand-selected quote and provide context to its meaning. To tie it all together, we include our own one-of-a-kind portrayal of Euge_ne Delacroix. Now let your colors flow!
