Okay I wasn't sure; that's great ! I'd like to do the same but don't really know how, you're bringing your computer and tablet into the wild ? ^^

I use a galaxy note 10.1. It's pressure sensitive and comes with a wacom S-pen stylus. It's good for starting these things on site and taking notes for later. Also snap a couple of photos. I will do as much as I can this way because it is so convenient, but glare on screen and colour calibration is a constant issue to deal with.

Digital Plein air-ists have custom made setups for their laptops. Check out Shaddy Safadi's setup. 

My laptop is too beat up and has power issues to be able to take outside but when I upgrade I may do something like Shaddy so I can finish paintings on site. Nothing like painting from life outdoors! :)

Thanks a lot for your answer ! This is something I've been wondering about for a while. I agree that this is a really interesting concept and sometimes I'm thinking "damn, I'd like so much to paint this with these awesome colours right here right now... and my damn cell phone doesn't take photo with good enough colours (essentially for sunsets so usually I photoshop my photos or try to paint the sunset from memory...). Why can't I take my watercolours or my photoshop everywhere ?"

Now I see how an artist can use this kind of tablets :) thinking about it, my mother should lend me her galaxy tab... maybe I'll be able to digitally sketch with it !

No problem. The best way to learn and improve is to paint/draw from life, so it is worth the effort. I must try and do it more. I actually think traditional painters have it easier in this respect. They don't need electricity! 
Yeah have a play with tablets, the galaxy tab won't have pressure sensitivity but you can still have fun within the restrictions.

Yep you're right ! I have to train more too, I don't draw enough, I have to practice anatomy and landscapes and well everything. I think perhaps I should always bring with me a little sketch book with colored pencils, so I can easily sketch and pick colours. But it's not my fav medium, I usually work with photoshop or watercolour but the thing is with watercolour it's a bit more delicate...

Anywai, thanks and keep on painting, I like your stuff :D

Just drawing all the time is really good practice, colour or no.  I will never stop painting if I can help it :)
