Mark Daniel Nelson - Getting an Abstract Start with Procreate (Recording) - Free!

Date recorded: Tuesday, April 5, 2022
Level: All
Medium: Digital art

Are you curious about sketching on an iPad? Have you heard your friends rave about the drawing app Procreate? Do you ever wish you could “be more abstract” with your own paintings? Join artist Mark Daniel Nelson as he shares his approach for abstracting an image before ever touching a paintbrush using the digital drawing app Procreate. No previous experience required to participate.

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, 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. markdanielnelson.com
