The postman came to the door twice . So after the first knock. ( ink for my printer) I was resigned to getting my new tablet tomorrow. However another postman arrived about 2 hours later with another package. Hurray!!
It was seriously well wrapped by the person selling it and took me at least 5 minutes to carefully cut through all the parcel tape and empty out all the scrunched up paper plus what looked like 2 hoover filters . And there it was. ….
It didn’t take long to charge and in the meantime I printed off lots of pages of instructions. Complete waste of time as I found it’s just like my phone. ( which was what I was hoping) There is only one problem which is that it says it is incompatible with the painting app which I have been using. That seems a bit strange as I have it on my kindle fire and my samsung phone.
I might have to look for another app , but this time I will chose more carefully as I know that I will use it.
It’s a risk buying something secondhand so am hoping it will be ok in general. ( my old kindle was secondhand ten years ago and was still working this afternoon.)
I went out this morning even though it was quite cold. I even put jeans on instead of thinner flowery leggings. Unfortunately a lot of my jeans have paint on them so I spent 10 minutes colouring over a particularly obvious red mark. You can hardly see it now.
I had to stop and zip up my coat half way up the brick road so I thought it would be sensible to find a warm place to sit.I found a nice seat in the sun. 20 minutes later I had taken my jacket off and was very hot. The sunshine was so strong that it was difficult to see the screen. I left when the painting was about half done.
It’s not the same working from a photo. The colours are different.
I have a few technical things to work out yet it seems. Next time hopefully J will be using my new tablet with the bigger screen. Exciting. !
Am going to a market tomorrow with friends. My plan is to look at the secondhand stall and maybe get some winter clothes. Last year I spent €10 on my winter wardrobe. I could manage with what I have now …..but I was tempted….
I still don’t know what to paint next on canvas . Hope I come up with some ideas soon.
Now am waiting for a friend to arrive and we have a lot of catching up to do.🍷🍷
