Overall experience using this panel was great. I typically paint on wood panel more so than canvas, and this was definitely one the better ones I’ve used, by far.
I had an amazing experience with this product. If I had the space to store multiple panels, I would make more watercolor paintings on these, as unlike watercolor paper I didn't have any warping problems that happen when using watercolor paper made with wood pulp. I noticed that it has a look similar to hot pressed watercolor paper. I also found that using white erasable colored pencil for an outline is visible enough to work as an outline, but not noticeable in the finished product.
love the panel, acrylic spreads easily on the prepped surface and has holes drilled in for easy hanging. Working on the painting for the contest and hoping to submit soon
I will be using it tomorrow night, but so far I think the quality looks very good
Received the 2 panels for the Pet portrait competition! Love the smoothness of the surface and the size if perfect for the image I am submitting!
