New to Corel and the adventure starts here!!!

OK - I'm going to create oil paintings from my photos.  I'm going to try out Corel Painter 2020 but I'll also need a tablet - what though??  Looked at Wacom site and there are loads!  Can't find a local retailer where I can go and see one and try it out so currenlty hoping to find an illustrator/artist.

Any advice would be SOOOO welcome!!
