What is the better/best painting support for large scale easel painting (Las Meninas or The Raft of the Medusa come to mind)
I personally find myself between a rock and a hard place when it comes to large scale painting supports. As many of these forums have explained, the hard panel surface is far more structurally sound than its canvas/linen counter part. On the other hand, when you want to create painting larger than sheet material size, the seam will undoubtedly rear its face during the life of the painting. I realize there are also ways to join boards to make a larger sheet surface, but my gut tells me those seams could cause problems down the line, as well. There may not be an ideal surface, but is there a best surface for this endeavor?
