This week’s PleinAir Art Podcast with Eric Rhoads features Dan Marshall, a tattoo artist whose passion includes painting with watercolor en plein air.
About Dan Marshall: Born in New Jersey in 1971, reared in Ohio and finishing his education in Connecticut at the Propersi Institute of Art, Marshall is used to adapting to different environs. As a successful tattoo artist, he has been fortunate to extend his travel experiences all over the world.
With frequent opportunities to paint the scenes he finds, allowing him to draw on his early experiences of adaptation, Dan produces the majority of his work en plein air. This has helped to develop a confident style with an immediacy and freshness infused into each painting. Dan currently lives in Denver with his wife, Madoka, and French bulldog, Mogu. He works in his own studio gallery and private tattoo space, Atelier 71.
Over 20 years of drawing daily for tattoo clients has sharpened his skills as a draftsman, and studying with renowned artist Joseph Zbukvic has elevated his techniques in watercolor. Dan is constantly studying his influences (Sargent, Galien-Laloue, Cortes, Loir, Schmid, Cornwall, Workman), continuing to experiment and hone his personal style.
