Acrylic Pouring Abstract Art 

Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Contrast Color Split Base with Paint and Water only - Yin Yang

Welcome to the new Black and White - Abstract Art Acrylic Pouring video tutorial. In this fluid art lesson, I'm going to show you how to create a stunning abstract painting on a black and white color split base with a twist. We're going to create reversed colors flow painting with a blown technique. Also in this abstract art tutorial, I will show you how to do a touch-up to bring your color split to the next level. 

"Balance" is a secret message for this fluid painting, and let's dab into this yin-yang composition. This canvas is 20 by 20, so I'm just going to draw the line right in the center. I want to break pour painting into two halves. This line will not stay perfect when I'm going to start blowing the paint and shifting it around, but we'll make it perfect again once the painting is dry. And then I want to create that black and white color split base. As for the pouring recipe, all of my colors I mixed with water only.

Acrylic Pouring RECIPE used for today’s flow art painting:​

Acrylic paint is mixed with water only to a fluid consistency. I add approximately 30-50% of water to my colors. There is no exact % or proportion because this ratio depends on initial paint viscosity, which significantly varies from brand to brand and even from color to color.

To make a good company for my black and white base I definitely want to use silver. I think it will look beautifully on both sides creating little darker parts in my white and little brighter parts in my black. It will also help some to get some cells and lacing. And on top of that, I want to create brighter red and orange pops of color inside of these flows. 

Let's see how this acrylic pour painting idea turned out. Without further ado, let's get started! 

This modern black and white painting is all done and finished. I covered it with a layer of glossy varnish. I think it looks very good in this one. This flow painting's name is "Yin Yang Melody" and it's all about harmony and balance between the opposite forces, the continuous melody of dancing colors, and, of course, this beautiful striking color palette. I love the transformation of colors the dark on light background and light on dark background. And I'm really digging this sharp border color split base, especially, with such a minimalistic color palette and all these beautiful pops of bright colors hidden in the flow.

I hope you enjoyed this acrylic painting tutorial and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
