This one is on a paper called 'Stonehenge', but any watercolour paper should work. I think it is a bit easier to use hot press paper rather than cold press though, at least to start out with as it has less of a tooth and a smoother texture.

Thanks, it's actually oil paint used in a 'dry brush' technique. I use a very small amount of oil paint lightly brushed onto the paper.
