antonea808 Translucent Orange by Schmincke. I've been waiting for this tube in the mail for a few weeks. It came all the way from Sweden (but it's a German brand). Orange isn't my favorite color but this has great range. Very bring and pigmented or watered down to a softer orange that still "glows". I'm impressed also I made a DIY watercolor "Midori" watercolor notebook. First one so I used my cheap Fabriano paper. #Schmincke #watercolor #midori #watercolorpalette #watercolorpainting #artsupplies #artsupplyjunkie #newpaint 5d

antonea808 Mail! Martha Stewart score board, W&N gouache in Opera Rose and Daniel Smith watercolor in Opera Pink. For dark paper, the gouache really has to be layered. The "acrylic gouache" from Turner or Holbein are a better option for darker papers. #watercolor #artsupplies #pink #operapink #danielsmith #winsorandnewton #turner #holbein #marthastewart 1w
  •   tashacantadora 🏾🏾🏾 Yay for your new pretties! Love that hot pink! 1w

antonea808 Finally took the time to cut down some arches paper. I was getting so frustrated with Fabriano paper. It's so fussy when you lay down large washes. But arches? Oh, it's divine and less expensive in large sheets ️. #watercolor #arches #paper 1w
  •   tashacantadora Good to know! I brought a rough block of Fabriano on sale a few weeks ago. 1w
  •   antonea808 @tashacantadora I bought a bunch on sale too. It's not bad if you don't use a lot of water. But I mean... It's supposed to be watercolor paper! 1w
  •   tashacantadora I use tons of water too! It's ridiculous. I load my size 16 Neptune Brush, which is thirsty , and have at it! Usually I use an 8 or 10, and I love me some water on my brush. I need to get some more Saunders because I love it! Ugh. So much paper to choose from!! I'm going to try Fabriano tomorrow. Hopefully it will put up with me. And I love Olga. She's amazing! 1w

antonea808 Finally got my hands on some finetec! Now I want the whole palette!! #watercolor #finetec #instaart #gold 1w
  •   mandolin2385 So pretty! I want to get into water colors! What are some good basic start up items for a newbie? Any recommendations? 1w
  •   antonea808 @mandolin2385 paints- W&N Cotman watercolor a are great and so are Van Gogh. I suggest getting at least a 12 pan or tube set to start. Watercolor paper makes a big difference. The best economical one I've used is Strathmore 400 series. And brushes are important. Look for brushes meant for watercolor a. I've been enjoying some made by Princeton and Silver. They are good for synthetic brushes. 1w
  •   antonea808 @mandolin2385 I always really love playing with metallics. If you would too I would either start with gold or silver gouache or a finetec palette. Honestly the finetec is superb and so easy to use. It's about $30 depending where you buy it but I'm convinced. 1w
  •   mandolin2385 @antonea808 awesome! Thank you so much!! Seeing your stuff has me inspired! I'm headed to the craft store today and I'll see what I can find! I'll check online too! Thanks for the tips! 🖌 1w

antonea808 My blick order came! Yay I picked up 2 boards, some Princeton brushes, watercolor paper (this one is new to me. Highly rated), 2 finetec refills (didn't want to invest in a whole palette), and 2 porcelain palettes. I can't tell you how much I hate plastic palettes. #watercolor #haul #artsupplies #watercolorpainting #watercolorpalette #dickblick #blick 1w

antonea808 Day 3. Only 1,400 calories.
This carb count is way off. My net carb total is really at a whopping 7 grams. #mfp counts a lot of carbs in the guacamole I had but the label said it was all fiber. 🤔
Slightly groggy today and I'm having to pee every hour, but otherwise good! Today was great, macro wise. I'm wondering if I'll get the keto flu at all this time. Maybe my body will adapt faster than before but usually day 3 is the worst. Yay Keto! #lchf #keto #macros

antonea808 Back to that #keto life. It definitely involves more planning but also great focus and stamina that my life requires right now. Protein is a bit high but I was thrown a curveball at last minute lunch plans with coworkers so fajitas it was. #macros #lchf #mfp tomorrow will be day 3! 4w
