I did this one on grey color fix.  Pastel blends well.  Rather abrasive on the finger tips.

 :congrats: Jill your painting is excellent, I love the waves they look so real.  What an artiste.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Seeing all the coloured painting makes me  so anxious to start other medium, but got to finish all the drawing first.

Jill, this is just a beautiful pastel.  So soft and dreamy.  Love the clouds and rocks.  Actually, I love it all :smitten:

Is gray color fix a sanded surface?
Beautiful work-the blue of the sea is stunning, and your sky is dreamy.

Thanks for your kind comments Natalie.

"Art Spectrum Colourfix papers are produced on acid-free watercolor paper. Art Spectrum Pastel Primer is screen printed on the paper surface, leaving a border of approximately 1/2"on all sides. The acrylic base primer is lightfast, has a deep tooth and can handle many different mediums, extensive reworking and over painting."

Google it.  There are some YouTube videos that explain the process.

I have not tried it with watercolor yet.  Although I would hesitate to use good brushes on this surface as I don't think they would last long.
