Since I have so many hand tremors caused by meds, I have been teaching myself digital art. I hand draw the picture on paper, scan it into the computer and digitally add color.

It looks great Steven,  I've dabbled with with digital   but  never got very far with it. What  programs  did you use?

My meds just make me go to sleep all the time,  I've  even come around and found my nose resting on the canvas on the easel, luckily  that section was already dry

I am using Affinity Designer, Paul. It's fun and at a good price (40.00) , but it comes with a huge learning curve. But I started with Microsoft Paint early on, which is so much easier. If you ever need help, I'll be happy to try.  :)

I do have paint shop pro on the computer , in fact I have it on two desktops and a laptop but I never get around to switching them on and do almost everything on my mobile  phone, I do use picsay  when I want something  edited
