For the last two months, though, I've been doing an internship in Ludwigburg, Germany and I find myself with more time on my hands.
Here's one of the paintings from my time here:
I've started using MyPaint a lot, mostly because Painter doesn't work on my current laptop. But MyPaint is really nice in that it has limitations. You can't transform parts of your image or move layers around on the canvas. I find that this let's me focus on the drawing and painting part of things and I have a lot of fun with it.
Try it if you get a chance.
