going digital

Over the past few months I have been exploring various computer programs, such as Painter,Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash. Working digitally had been something I had avoided up until now, for various reasons. The main one being was that I did not have a computer or the software. What I am finding is that there is an infinite realm of possibilities when working in a digital format, and I am beginning to enjoy working this way very much. 
I completed a painting tonight using a combination of painter and photoshop. The image was a remake of one of my children's book pages in which I originally did in watercolor. I have to say I like the digital result a lot more than the old watercolor.  This doesn't mean I plan to trade in the paint brush for the Wacom tablet, but it does mean I will continue to explore new possibilities.
