In this AQUA Gradient Acrylic Pouring tutorial, I want to explore something new! This time I want to do gradient pour painting with a turquoise and aqua color palette. “Aqua bliss” is a secret message for this gradient pour painting. For this flow painting, I want to go for the color split base. For this purpose, I have a Prussian blue color but I also added some brilliant blue and a little bit of white to it, so it looks very much like navy blue.
And the second color will be white. For this pour painting layout, for composition, for color split instead of doing diagonal this time, I want to give it a little bit of curve to create a wavy movement. I think that should be perfect acrylic pouring composition with these colors. The size of the cradled wood panel is 14 by 18 inches.

Acrylic Colors and Supplies used in this AQUA Gradient
For my colors, I have turquoise green, turquoise blue, and brilliant blue. But I also added a touch of turquoise in the last one. These two colors: orange mixed with gold, and yellow mixed with gold I’m going to use just as accents in my flow. I want to use very little of these colors just to create some areas of interest in the whole fluid painting. The idea of gradient pour paintings is to create a sort of smooth transition from one color to another. This is the turquoise gradient transition from darker to lighter. Let’s see how this pour painting turned out. So without further ado let’s jump right into the process.
This gradient pour painting was all dry and I covered it with a layer of epoxy resin. I really love how the orange pops at the top part of this flow painting. But most importantly actually I added some more yellowish-orange color inside of my finger swipe area. And I think it made a huge difference in pour painting composition, it really connected the whole flow together. I am glad that I added iridescent color and orange details. I think this abstract painting looks especially good with the blue turquoise color palette and with this dark blue base. I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
