I have used stretched canvas throughout my career. This has been the quintessential support for paintings since the Renaissance in Europe, and it is easy to understand why. It is durable, flexible and versatile. Different kinds and weights of cotton and linen, and different priming techniques make its surface accessible to many different manipulations. Due to its lightness, it is very practical for very large formats. It can be easily transported (un-stretched, in rolls) which is very convenient for my transatlantic travel.
