I am a beginner and am passionate about getting into oil painting, however don't have the space to do so. It's just not feasible in my living situation. To make the best of it, I'm practicing sketching to set myself up for when I have space. I've been using pencil and colored pencil.
I've been feeling roadblocked because I had some ideas that are too difficult for my ability in colored pencil. You can't erase, blend well, or match a lot of colors with colored pencil, so its limiting. I was thinking of getting a Wacom Intuos so I could at least practice oil painting and explore my ideas. I like to think I would make a digital version and then copy it with paint when I have space.
Is this a reasonable plan? Or is there no benefit to doing digital art in practice or planning for doing oil painting?
