when speaking of paper in drawing, canvas in painting, etc.....
I tend to call the pencil, ink, etc as media, but what is the
word I am looking for the paper or canvas?
support? foundation? substrate?
there is a word I have used, but I swear my memory facilities are
fading.... need this for an article I am writing...
help would be appreciated what do you call the structure you pour
your art out on?
