So far, the answer is... no. Not really. The colour of the canvas is nowhere near as bright as a piece of paper, so much of the colour is lost.
The rough surface is probably doing a number on my brushes, but that's okay because my brushes are pretty old and "basic" anyway :3
I... I totally caved and upgraded to a super basic DSLR today. I'M SO EXCITED. It's the Canon Rebel T3 (like I said, super basic) and I'm sure I'm going to break it. Assuming I ever figure out how to use it.
I got stuck on the first page on the instructions on how to attach the strap. Seriously. I'm doomed.
