Ocean Dream 

Gradient Acrylic Pouring 🌊

Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Dancing Flow on Color Split Base ~ Abstract Art | Fluid Art

Welcome to the new Ocean Dream Gradient Acrylic Pouring video tutorial. This time I want to create a Dancing Flow painting on the color split base. And the colors of the flow are going to be just gorgeous – turquoise, aqua, blues. A really ocean inspired color palette with some gold and orange accents in that flow. I’m super excited to get started working on this abstract painting. “Ocean Dream” is a secret message for this pour painting painting. And this abstract artwork is going to be a diagonal composition. 

I will actually start with my white color first, one part is going to be white. And the other part is going to be dark blue, which is a mix of prussian blue, some brilliant blue, and a touch of white. And the colors of the flow are going to be in this diagonal wave.

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.

I’ll add my colors in gradient order. I’ll start with brilliant blue, then turquoise blue. And then turquoise green, it just has a lot more green pigment in it compared to turquoise blue. I also want to add a little bit of ultramarine blue. I feel like it’s going to look awesome in this color palette. And some gorgeous iridescent blue-green. And I want to add splashes of orange and gold! So let’s see how it works. Let’s get started.

Hey, guys, so here this ocean pour painting is all done and finished. I just love how this fluid painting turned out. It’s covered with the epoxy resin as always for this beautiful glass-like effect. And this abstract painting has such a light, cheerful and happy ocean energy. It’s so, so beautiful. Orange and gold make such beautiful bright accents in this blue and turquoise color palette. It’s definitely a bit of a risky combination because these colors are complementary, and they can create some mud when overmix too much. But if you don’t overmix your colors by overworking or overblowing them, this color palette actually works quite amazing creating beautiful striking focal points in your creations. I really love how it worked in this painting. I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
