New Mixed Media Painting – Flat Iron Building

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Mixed Media Painting


I finished this new painting of the Flat Iron Building in NYC which is 12″x16″. I had a good time with it, especially trying to get a bit into a different color scheme and using pastels. I was definitely inspired by the Art Stroll through the Degas Exhibition at MoMA.


This is a little photo collage showing the progress of the painting from underpainting, to adding more details, to changing things, over staring it down to finishing it up 🙂 .


Besides Acrylic Inks, Acrylic Paints and Acrylic Markers, I also used Charcoal Marker and Graphite.


I added some finishing touches with PanPastels. It was fun – and I am very drawn to this color palette.

For those of you who want to know what I used specifically – as always a supply list- some links are affiliate links.

Let me know if you find the process of a painting interesting to see- if so I will incorporate those collages more often !

    I like the color palette as well. I also enjoyed seeing the pictures of the different stages of the painting. Do you usually take pictures of the different stages for reference when working on a painting? Great painting!

      thank you Brenda! Yes I do take photos in between to see the evolvement of it and also where I might have taken a different turn- but also to check on color values and because it is just a different view to see it through the camera.
