Virtual Reality

Hello everyone ... anyone still out there?

I've recently been playing with a pen-based computer and I've been trying out a few free and paid-for painting and sketching apps.

This simple sketch was done using a Samsung Galaxy Book ... a Windows 10 based tablet PC that I like to call my 'poor mans Surface Book'  :-)). I used a lovely no-frills drawing app called Colorist which has a few basic tools: pen, eraser, colour dropper and a really nice coloured pencil plus an easy to use palette.

It's a little bit strange drawing on a glass screen to begin with but eventually, apart from the lack of tactile feedback,  it starts to feel like you're using real coloured pencils on real textured paper rather than virtual ones!
