and of course taking over the whole store and making a big mess 🙂


We did a FB Live Stream right from the store on my Facebook Page of some fun techniques – you can see the store, some wonderful people and the store in action if you want 🙂 It was a lot of fun and thank you to all that came, the people who watched the video and joined and Anna and Jane from the InkPad!!!

    Thanks, Natalie, for the great demos! Just what I needed, a refresher lesson on using my gelli plate. I will definitely have to visit that NY store!

New Mixed Media Painting – Flat Iron Building

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Mixed Media Painting

FlatIron01

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.

    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.
