I have always painted on cradled hard wood panels.
But now I am doing something different. I am stretching canvas over the panels and once the painting is done, restretching the canvas on stretcher bars.
Click here or on the image below and I will show you how.
This new support system has solved the problems of warping, high delivery costs and the heaviness of my finished art all in one fell swoop!
Although it has taken quite a while to figure this out I am super excited about this new approach to my art support system.
Maybe what I have learned can help you too.
I know many share the same challenges I did. Let us all know in the comments what has worked for you.
