The canvas does make a difference.  It provides the foundation for the whole painting.  Too dry a canvas which hasn’t been primed enough makes it difficult for wet-on-wet oils or acrylics to slide.  At the same time, that very foundation can also be turned to an advantage if you’re wishing to do some dry brush work.  Knowing your materials and how they work can contribute to the outcome of your painting.
