I'm getting ready to order Pro Panels for a new set-up and I'm stuck on the color. There are eight colors to choose from; oatmeal, buff, teak, pine needle, moonbeam, light gray, dark gray, and black. The most common color I see used is light gray. I've never seen the teak or pine needle used, but that may just be a local thing.
I've seen the black used with large abstract paintings and it looked great, but I think it would overpower my smaller frames. Is there a reason I see so much of the light gray? Do judges prefer it or does it wear better? I need some feedback from artists who love or hate the color Pro Panels they have. I don't want to make such a large investments and then find out later there is a reason the color I chose is uncommon.
