Join Mark Daniel Nelson for another fun iPad Procreate presentation as he shares ways that this powerful and intuitive tool can be used to examine not only your own “work in progress”, but also the work of master artists. Exploring options for color, value, and composition using a digital approach eliminates the need to wait for paint to dry and accelerates the process of experimentation. Join us for this free introduction to the app Procreate and see for yourself how to utilize this technology to accelerate your learning.
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. markdanielnelson.com
