Colors are true and very bright. Not faded out. Canvas however was a little disappointing in that it has no raised brush strokes so that it really just looks like a giclee (which is good) print on some textured paper - not canvas. Also needs a frame as the wood this is stretched on is pretty flimsy and the white border is distracting. Which will add to the overall cost of the piece. In all, a good buy but not great.
