In English "canvas" often means "painting" and according to Van Dale Gratis Woordenboek, this is the case in Dutch too: 3 (meervoud: doeken) schilderij.

You can use "doek" to refer to "schilderij", in the same way you can use "canvas" to refer to "painting", though technically it is "het doek" and "the canvas" that the painter uses to paint on to turn it into a painting.

Wat is het verschil tussen?

This is no longer a canvas, but a painting. This is no more a canvas, but a painting.

Beide zinnen hebben dezelfde betekenis.
