Unfortunately, I don't have a tablet at work, so these are all painted with a mouse. I thought it would be frustrating, but it's actually a great learning experience--since I can't rely on blending and fancy brushes, I have to be very exact with my color choices. It reminds me of when I learned to paint with acryla gouache in school. I didn't realize how much I've been using certain brushes, overlay layers, etc. as a crutch to observing color. So yeah, use the mouse and it will set you FREE!
