Date: Friday, April 14, 2023

Time: 9:30-10:30 AM Pacific Time; 12:30-1:30 PM Eastern Time; 5:30-6:30 PM UK Time

Level: All

Medium: Digital

Presentation Type: Talk

Join Mark Daniel Nelson for a fascinating look at how he recently used Procreate to help him produce a large series commission of paintings. Mark will share some of the ways that Procreate helped him create a unified body of work, from making the preliminary sketches, creating and playing with color schemes and composition, working with and combining reference images and speeding up the work time to meet deadlines.


Mark Daniel Nelson approaches both painting and teaching in much the same way: He strives to simplify and organize information until it reaches its most potent, elemental form. A student of both representational and non-objective painting, Nelson regularly fuses seemingly incongruous approaches to create new and unexpected results. “I strive for two things,” the artist states in his characteristically blunt manner, “impact and beauty. Eliminate the unnecessary parts and you’re left with much more powerful, beautiful modes of expression.” Mark Daniel Nelson is represented by Maxwell Alexander Gallery in Culver City, California, Gallery 1261 in Denver, CO and Jack Meier Gallery in Houston, TX. He has taught extensively in Art History, Human Anatomy, Drawing and Painting across the US.
