A Jerry's Online Street Team Art Project with Nathalie Kalbach and Liquitex

Last week, we introduced you to Nathalie Kalbach and her paintings in our Artist Spotlight. To show off some of her skills and teach you how to create a similar mixed-media masterpiece, we sat down with Nathalie for a step-by-step walkthrough of how she creates her art. Take it away Nathalie!

"Being able to mix a variety of mediums into one project is important to me as a mixed media artist. For this reason, I love to use Liquitex Professional Acrylics for my urban paintings because Liquitex paints are all compatible with each other."

Step 1

"I usually start a painting by mixing Liquitex Soft Body and Heavy Body Acrylics with a brayer directly on the substrate."

 

"Using different viscosity acrylic paints give me the texture that I strive for in my background."

 

Step 2

"Using Liquitex Professional Spray paints I start laying out the composition and add another layer to my painting."

 

Step 3

"Next I create the city skyline- here the skylines of Manhattan and Jersey City by sketching, using collage elements and using Liquitex Acrylic Inks!"

 

Step 4

"I continue painting the skyline using Liquitex Soft Body and Acrylic Ink as well as Liquitex Heavy Body Paint for more texture and dimension."

 

Step 5

"The next layer is Liquitex Professional Spray Paint- repeating some of the stenciling of the former layers."

"Adding some Liquitex Acrylic Ink into some wet spray-painted areas create some interesting drips in different values for the waterline."

 

Step 6

"Usually I finish my paintings using Liquitex Markers."

 

"The markers help me to create some more detailed drawings but also a smoother color transition between two layered areas."

 

Step 7

"And another urban painting intermixing all kinds of Liquitex Acrylics is done."

And theres the final product. Thanks to Nathalie Kalbach and Liquitex for making such a cool Mixed-Media Masterpiece. To see more about liquitex's complete intermixability system, check out our Liquitex Page!
