Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Soft Contrast Base Acrylic Pouring on Big Canvas ~ Fluid Art Lesson

Welcome to the new Dark Flow - Paint Pouring Abstract Art tutorial. This time I want to work on a very delicate and soft light turquoise base. I have prepared quite a few colors in a turquoise family, so some a little more green, some a little more blue. But they are all very beautiful combination of marine and even sky colors. 

The first one is going to be sort of the main color for the base, it's a turquoise green, but I added more white to it, so it's not as strong, more on the delicate side of things. The second one is sky blue but again I added even more white in it, and this one is much cooler, it's much closer to the blue family. Then I want to add emerald green with a touch of white as well.

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.

And on that base, I want to create a dancing flow using a darker deeper colors. I'm working with some light and dark contrast in this fluid acrylic painting lesson. For the flow, I want to think outside of the canvas. 

"Zing" is a secret message for this flow painting, and I'm working on a 20 by 20 inches canvas this time. 

So let's see how this abstract painting art idea turns out and without further ado let's get started.

And here this abstract pour painting is dry and finished with a layer of glossy varnish. And oh boy, this fluid painting is all about the movement. And what I love the most is how metallics go all throughout the painting, they just shine, pop, and connect the whole composition. This is so cool. On such a multicolor base, the black just pops and it creates so much contrast. I think I want to experiment more with the monochromatic base and black sort of contrasty flows.

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