Archival Painting Panels

by Art Boards™ Archival Art Supply


Glossary Term : Panel Painting

Most surviving paintings from the 13th to the early 16th century are painted on wooden panels. 

The wood most widely used in Italy was poplar, but in the Netherlands, France and England oak panels were most common.  Lime, beech, chestnut and cherry as well as oak were used in Germany and Austria.  Walnut and pine, and sometimes cherry and other fruit woods, were also used in Italy for panels.



  Your choice of painting surface can have a profound effect on the success of your art.

Creating as much impact as paint or technique.  Most cracked paint seen in completed paintings results from some type of movement in the painting support.

Art Boards™ art panels protect your artwork from damage,

caused by the flexing and cracking of paint films, and the solid structure prevents the surface from being accidentally dented, torn or damaged by mishandling.

Wood art panels are more permanent than flexible fabric.

A properly prepared Art Board painting panel will have a longer life than stretched canvas or other thin flexible supports.

Painting on wood panels far surpasses painting on canvas.  

Art Boards™ smooth reflective surface refracts light differently than canvas, making colors more brilliant and vibrant.  The firm consistent surface is perfect for smooth blending of colors, fine brushwork, and minute detail.
