After my failed attempts with the wacom tablet I thought that whilst I’d still got some goes on my free trial of autosketch I’d try direct drawing with the mouse on the laptop. Not a success! Whilst it felt quite nice to have more space to work in, with the much greater freedom of arm movement that the laptop and mouse give, using the mouse is a million miles away from using a stylus. There is also the issue of using the mouse with my right hand – not exactly intuitive for a die-hard left hander. And using the mouse in my left hand feels totally confusing…pc sketch 29.4 160w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />

I think I will try using a 10 inch tablet to see what difference that makes.
