Most of Kortlang's work consists of paintings, etchings and gouaches, but he also made lithographs, ink drawings and collages. Characteristic of his oeuvre are his 950 unique etchings, which he made by processing the etching plate himself. So he not only draws on the plates, but also cuts and combines them. In addition, it varies with the biting time of the acid. The etchings from his early years are mainly black, but Kortlang has been experimenting with color since 1966. Since the 1980s, he has also been overlaying many different etchings in various combinations. His works from the 90s are characterized by the pink and light blue contours that outline the shapes. This gives the creations a picturesque character.
