I had a thought the other day that the pastel paper that I had left over from my days working in pastel would be suitable for colour pencils. So I pulled it all out and discovered something interesting that I hadn't realised - the surface is suitable for acrylics.
I was curious to try out a different surface so decided to first try out the Colourfix Suede paper with acrylics. I absolutely love this paper for acrylics - it is hard to explain but the paint just slides on and it is easier to paint detail.
Some information on the Colourfix Suede paper - the base paper is a 500gsm hot press watercolour paper and it is an archival quality surface suitable for use with a range of mediums including acrylics.
So here is the painting I did on this paper.
Siskin measures 5 x 5 inches and is painted on Colourfix 500gsm Suede Paper.
Many thanks to Aschi for the reference photo.
