Welcome to this new Floral Diptych ~ Acrylic Pouring Abstract Art video tutorial. I want to try quite an unusual composition, so not only it's going to be a diptych, I also want to do a color split, and to implement the round negative space in this flow painting. I have three hoops ready for such paint pouring technique. Also I want to create a flow that will sort of wrap around and dance around these rings.
In this fluid painting lesson, I'm working on two 12-by-12-inch wooden panels, and I painted the sides before starting my fluid art process. "Dance with Me" is a secret message for this pour painting. I want these two panels to dance together.

Acrylic Colors and Supplies used in this Floral Diptych
For the colors for this abstract artwork, I have three colors that are going to be the main story of this piece and they all are done from the same pigments. The main color is a permanent red-violet which is one pigment. One color, that I'm going to use for a base, has some black and white. Second one is the same exact color but it has some white, only white. So these colors, of course, work and speak together because it's not even analogous colors, this is a completely monochromatic color palette.
Let's see how such an abstract art idea turns out. And without further ado let's get started.
Here is this abstract pour painting is dry. I did not keep my initial round negative space idea. I'm glad that I didn't because I think all these soft blended edges actually work much better with this flow now. But because initially, I wanted to have that asymmetrical round negative space, it created this interesting effect in this fluid acrylic painting. But because I have some weights of the dark color spread out, this pour painting is actually quite interestingly imbalanced but balanced at the same time. There's something about it, makes this piece very moving and dynamic. And you know what? This fluid painting has a very strong spring bloom, spring blossom color energy. And right now here in Vancouver, where I live, it is the time for cherry blossom, it is absolutely beautiful. And this abstract spring art painting totally has that energy. I really love the outcome!
I hope you enjoyed this acrylic painting tutorial and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
