If by drywall you mean sheetrock . . . . stunningly bad idea. <snip> I
suggest tempered masonite. <snip>
Apparently either the guy has never heard of Grandma Moses, or he
considers that being an "artist", he doesn't want to use something
that's already been done.
Myself, I would never presume to tell an "artist" anything. Even
though drywall (or sheetrock) would be somewhere at the bottom of any
list I made of things to paint paintings on. Hell, if I was going cheap
on canvas, if I didn't pick masonite to paint on, I'd probably pick
cardboard; it's even cheaper (try free), and will work a fine.
I still remember reading about the "artist" who considered simply
signing his name on a toaster made it a "work of art", and therefore
worth a multi-hundred dollar asking price. I never heard if any idiot
bought it or not.
Use your brain - it's the small things that count.
