12x16 in alkyd oil on archival canvas panel
Now here's a real colorist's work.
Subtlety, mystery, hits of purity, considered restraint, cohesiveness.
PS - what would make your canvas panel UN-archival? Curious re the posting "archival".

I think if it were acidic, it would be unarchival. "Archival" near as I can tell means pH neutral.
They have this panel I'm trying called Raymar. I think it's nice because the back is sealed.
The site is at: http://www.raymarart.com.
Here is what they say about them:
RayMar's Plein Aire Panel is a professional quality canvas panel offered at an affordable price. It consists of either a double acrylic primed fine or medium tooth canvas mounted through a commercial process on a 1/8th inch hardboard. The pH neutral adhesive that binds the canvas to the panel in a completely uniform way also provides a permanent barrier against any moisture or mold that might cause deterioration to the back of the canvas. The reverse side of the panel is covered with a neutral colored vinyl to resist warping. The Plein Aire Panel is 100% archival.
I just mention it to distinguish it from the common canvas panels on cardboard which I think are crap and people shouldn't use for any serious painting.
gotcha. I just did a "canvas on panel" for the first time so was curious.
I used to work in a university bindery with an archival restoration expert and had the good fortune of learning about/discovering archival methods/materials and "think" I'm doing it right (?)
How do you like the rigidity of the panel? I like the bounce of stretched canvas but think I'm becoming a convert to canvas on panels.
I'll check out the web site. Txs:)

I use painting knives quite a bit and I like the feel of the hard panel under the knife.

great colors on this one. I take it the hardboard pannels are some form of masonite or particle board or something? I had to stop painting on the canvas board after a leak in the storage room ruined some paintings. I might be up for trying a canvas over true hardboard though.

El, It looks like masonite.
