Experimenting with Digital Art

I whipped up a quick landscape - entirely, shock horror, in pixels!

 I could have painted it faster on canvas, and the interface (virtual palette, mouse or pen tablet) just feels kind of clunky and fiddly.   I feel like I have far less fine control using the mouse and I still can't quite get my head around the idea that I use the pen in one place and colour appears somewhere else.   I feel a bit RSI-ish after painting this very simple land/skyscape, which would not be at all taxing on paper! 

However, I am interested that I can apparently  'paint' in what is recognisably my style, via the laptop.  This could open up some interesting new ideas...   Click for bigger...
