It's approximately 16 x 12 inches on colourfix paper.
I've been using an under painting in watercolour and then adding detail in coloured pencil using the same method that I did with the spaniel but I'm finding it a very different experience to working on watercolour paper.
I thought it might be useful to compare my findings using the colourfix against using a hot press watercolour paper.
- The coloured paper provides a midtone which means fewer layers are needed to create the fur.
- Little work is needed to create a subtle background.
- White fur shows up against the darker paper.
- Both the watercolour and the coloured pencil sink into the colourfix requiring constant touching up.
- The rough surface of the paper eats the pencils and destroys brushes, it is advisable to only use old brushes.
On balance I think I prefer working on watercolour paper so it will be back to the Arches hot pressed paper for my next work.
