What's better:
1) acrylic or oil paints
2) canvas bored or streched canvas

play with them all!! Oil pant can coast more but drys slow, acrylic normally drys fast so you have to work fast unless you buy a slow drying paint. oil has been used for years that's y its most trusted but acrylic is pretty damn awesome and still new to the art world I'm more of a acrylic person, as for canvas bored or stretched canvas it more of a personal thing similar to the paint you use, some canvas boards are not acid free but i did see some new boards gesso on wood try using illustration board.
i personally stick to stretched canvas. Cool
