Cotton canvases are ideal for a wide range of artist purposes, particularly if you are choosing to paint with acrylic or oil paints. Linen is more expensive, and not recommended for your first canvas, mostly due to the cost. Linen doesn’t need as much painting and provides a slightly more randomised canvas base, though it doesn’t offer much more unless you are a professional going for a specific effect. Watercolour is best done on canvas board or watercolour paper.
