Digital Still Lifes and Figurative Paintings

These paintings have been made on the iPad with a stylus, some with Paper 53 App and the newer more painterly ones with Procreate App and the Apple Pencil.
The subject matter I painted had more to do with me discovering my limits and interests, than trying to build a body of work in a unique style.
Now I feel more comfortable with the tools, and I’m trying to develop a digital style that includes both design and realism, not necessarily photo realism any longer.
