antonea808 Cancer 2.23.15 - this was a lot of fun but I admit it looked like it would be a disaster at several points. I almost gave up on it and I got some looks from people when it was just ugly splotches. My first galaxy painting and I'll definitely try more. Arches 140lb cold pressed paper (5.9 x 11.8) using Dr Ph Martins Hydrus Watercolors and Lukas gouache in Opaque White. #Lukas #drphmartins #watercolour #watercolor #hydrus #galaxy #cancer #astronomy #constellation #stars #art #atxart #austin #arches 5d

antonea808 Some goodies I got today. Not pictured is another book and some arches watercolor full sheets. I went to Jerry's Artarama for their paint sale and discovered that they are no longer carrying (in the Austin store, at least) the Winsor & Newton Cotman line. Such a shame because they really are a affordable option that have good results! Some of the colors use better pigments than other professional lines. Also that hake brush STINKS when went.

antonea808 2.5.15 - this was a b*tch to paint. I laid down a lot of water plus it was so wet and cold yesterday that the layers were taking ages to dry. But I'm pretty happy with the result. Arches 140lb paper (cut to 5x7) and Winsor Newton cotman watercolors. #watercolor #watercolour #winsornewton #wannabe #art #atxart #austin #beginner #jerrysartarama #nature #arches #cotman 3w

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 1mon

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 1mon

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 1mon

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 1mon
  •   frogcooke I have this one too! Really like it. 1mon
  •   m.medova Nice colors! 1mon

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 1mon

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 2mon

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 2mon
