antonea808 Yay! I love Amazon. I ordered these 4 pens and when it arrived on Friday, only 1 was in the box. Naturally, Amazon made it right. I love that they don't hassle the customer. #amazon #calligraphy #pilot #pilotparallel #pens 5d

antonea808 I had the most wonderful adventure today. I drove to Hamilton Pool Reserve just a ways outside of Austin. Decent trails along the river with a loop around the naturally formed pool. But I just can't believe they charge $15 to go in. So much for a free adventure. #austin #trail #hiking #nature #adventure #atx #explore 2w

antonea808 My camera is NOT picking up the red from this at all. It's brighter IRL. I saw this dirty old ford outside of jerrys artarama (I think I posted the original picture a few weeks back...?) and I decided to use it for practice at lunch. I'm tempted to go back and buildup more color but I'm trying to stay true to the time constraints to avoid 'overworking' 1.16.15 TGIF #jerrysartarama #ford #watercolor #dirty #dirtyford #atx #atxart #austin 2w

antonea808 Current watercolor travel palette - Sakura Koi 24 mini pan travel palette. This travel palette is designed to perfection! It includes a waterbrush that fits in the case and the mixing palette can be placed in different positions. The range of colors is so fantastic. This is a great beginner palette. But I'm scoping out something more customizable and refillable, preferably artist quality. Tax return, come my way please! #watercolor #watercolorpalette #sakura #palette #art #atx #atxart #austin 2w

antonea808 Mail! My order from Amazon arrived yesterday. I got two awesome books, one on calligraphy (not shown) and another about urban architecture sketching. As well as a landscape 5x8 watercolor journal, and two Niji waterbrushes. Weeeeeee! #watercolor #art #atx #austin #artsupplies #niji #books #pentalic #gabrielcampanario 2w

antonea808 Lemons. I would love to have a lemon tree one day. There is nothing like fresh lemon in water, tea, a salad or even food! So at lunch I painted the lemons sitting on my desk. 11.14.15 Sakura Koi water color palette in cheap Fabriano 140lb watercolor paper using a water brush from Sakura and the small royal brush Aqua flo. #lemon #whenlifegivesyoulemons #watercolor #art #austin #atx #atxart #austinisweird #sakura 2w

antonea808 Yesterday I went to Jerry's for some gold ink and micron pens. When I left I noticed this old Ford covered in and dropping red dirt. It was too awesome to NOT capture. #ford #austin #austinisweird #keepaustinweird #jerrysartarama 3w

antonea808 1.4.15 I think this one is screaming for color and white accents... But I'm too tired. The season for long weekends off from work is over. Fiscal year end is right around the corner so things will just be getting crazier and crazier until about the end of summer. #accountant #mandala #mandalaaday #zendala #zentangle #zig #art #austin 4w

antonea808 1.2.14 ~ I feel like there is something missing here. And I'm not sure if I want to add color... Yup, it's been a indecisive day. #mandala #mandalaaday #zendala #zentangle #art #zig #austin 4w

antonea808 Another mandala from late last night/this morning. I used my new Dr. Ph. Martin's Hydrus Watercolors and white gouache from Lukas. Fine detailing with the gouache was tough so I'm getting a dip pen and some white ink. If it goes well maybe some gold ink... Ugh art stores are addicting! #art #mandala #zendala #zentangle #drphmartins #drphmartinshydrus #lukas 4w
