Digital Still Lifes and Figurative Paintings and Study's 2016 & 2017

I made these paintings and studies trying to see what I was able to do digitally, starting in 2016 with a simple painting app, Paper by 53, and its Stylus. I did not know which direction I would ultimately be interested in pursuing, just needed to know what I could do with the digital tools. These are the best of the bunch I tried to make; there was a big learning curve when I started using the Procreate App for the iPad Air 2 and the Pencil by 53 Stylus. On the Landscape pages you will see digital paintings done on the larger 12.9" iPad Pro with the wonderful Apple Pencil and the upgraded Procreate 4 App.
