Great product! Very affordable!

Comments about Blick Premier Belgian Linen Archival Panels:
I use these linen panels to paint photorealistic pieces. The panel has the perfect amount of texture to hold the paint, but it is smooth enough for my brush to glide across. Great product overall.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good quality, nice price
I have created 5 paintings with these linen panels and really enjoy working on them!
from Rio Verde Foothills, AZ
Nice solid panels with a smooth surface. I grabbed a few for a workshop and didn't bother to gesso. I prefer the smoother surface for plein air (smaller works) as it supports detailed brush work but still absorbs larger bolder strokes. Just a nice workhorse panel.
from Louisville, KY
I'd not used linen before in my oil paintings, but decided to give it a try for a piece that conveys an old feeling, almost like the era of papyrus. This worked wonderfully. I would not use it on every painting, but everyone who paints in oils should at least have the experience once or twice. Very unusual, but gorgeous effect.

Belgian Linen Panel
from Ellijay, GA
Feels great to paint on, grips the paint, and is wonderful.
Extremely aggressive tooth for a linen
from Boise, ID
I don't know what kind of oil primed linen this is, but if feels more like a cheap acrylic-primed canvas. You can prime your own acrylic - you don't need to buy an expensive oil-primed linen (besides they don't do that great a job on it). This surprisingly rough surface forced me to rub in the thinner layers, whereas with the same paint/medium mixture on any other oil-primed linen panel I've used, I could simply glide on thin layers from the start. I managed to make it work, but it was WORK. There are many better choices at Blick, even higher grade acrylic-primed canvas (e.g. W-N Pro) would be better and cheaper.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

great gift of linen canvas
from Richmond, VA
I love painting on linen canvasses so when my sister said she wanted to build a studio for her art teacher husband, I recommended linen canvasses. #sweepstakes
The perfect canvas
from Eudora, KS
I wanted a changed, from cotton canvas to Belgian linen. I am ecstatic with the quality linen canvas I received from Dick Blick, and the great value! I will be painting on linen from now on, and I will be purchasing those canvases from Dick Blick!
