What is an Art Journal? or … When the Why is clear the How is easy!

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal, Workshops

Art Journal …What is this thing? Let me try to explain in this video in my thick dscherman accent ­čśë

I art journal for different reasons:

  • to try out now techniques or art supplies
  • to get me creatively into swing before I paint
  • to get emotions and thoughts visually out
  • to try something that I will later apply in one form or the other on a canvas

So an art journal for me is a safe creative playground ­čśë

Now that you know

Playing with Gesso and Acrylic Ink

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal, Liquitex Ink

GessoInk

I love colors and I love texture …and I love adding both of it into my art journals, which is pretty easy :) Here is a fast forward video on how I create texture with Gesso and then add the super vibrant and pigmented Liquitex Inks to emphasize the texture even more.

Hope you liked this little playful video :)

Have a wonderful day

In My Own World – Liquitex Video

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Video

A couple weeks ago Liquitex sent in a little video crew to film me in my studio – and here is the final Brand Ambassador video in my own world :)

It was a lot of fun and I am so fortunate to work with a company like Liquitex┬áthat supports me in so many ways! Thank you so much Adam, Sara and Jenna for making me look kind of ok and for editing my accent out ( just kidding ­čśë )

I am so happy I quit my paralegal job and became a full time artist!

It has been a bumpy road at times but there was never a time I regret my decision!

Self doubts and fears come up all the time- but it is nothing that cannot be healed with a good old painting session in the studio.

Thank you for your support all these years from the bottom of my heart! Your comments and emails encouraged me over the years to go this road! I am a very happy camper today :)

With Love!
