Whoever said digital painting is easier than traditional painting in my opinion is WRONG 😮

I received my new tablet on Tuesday morning , I was so excited, I couldn’t wait to get going 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️ at last a screen I could paint onto 💃🏼💃🏼

It wasn’t  easy to set it all up, I’m definitely not a techie 👩‍💻 My pixels were playing up I painted a few things and they looked okay until I exported them. They had sparkles all around them and not in a good way.

I did the most amazing angel and she wouldn’t export properly!

So yesterday found me up at the crack of dawn trying to fix the problem. I even was having an online chat with some happy American person trying to fix my issues!

They told me what to do but  yet again I couldn’t fix it. 😤

By this time I was in meltdown, John had just got up when I informed him that I had enough it was going back in it’s box.

I removed all the wires and put it neatly back in it’s box. Out of mind out of sight!


A few hours later John called me into our spare room to tell me he had fixed the problem and it was ready to use. The thought of giving it another go was not happening. Every time I walked past the room I looked at it and snarled.


This morning I woke up feeling all refreshed and feeling good with the world. Yes I’m still eating bread 🙄🤷🏼‍♀️

img_3322I decided to try again thinking I would try something simple, something I had hand painted last year.   I decided to use the Art rage programme (aptly named) because I’m getting used to it and find it easier than photoshop.


This was my traditional hand painted one in acrylics.

Getting there, slow and steady wins the race !
