Reversed Dutch Pour 

Abstract Art For Beginners 😍

Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Acrylic Pour Painting - Fluid Art Tutorial

Welcome to a new Reversed Dutch Pour Abstract Art For Beginners video tutorial. I haven’t ever tried a reversed dutch pour, so, I’m about to give this paint pouring technique a try. And the idea here, the concept for reversed dutch pour is to have multiple colors as a background, and have one color to blow over them. So, to have one color as your main focus.


I have prepared quite a few colors for this abstract art lesson. I have some blue, red. Also I want to add the touch of gold and orange. And I’m going to blow titanium white over all these colors. I want to create just a rough guideline for me with white color.

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 I’m going to start just adding those colors all over, to make them into my negative space. It’s not exactly the negative space, but this is going to be the base coat. Really multicolor one! The plan that I have here for my colors, I want to have them mostly in a cool color palette with some blues and turquoise, and then just a splash of red. Let’s see how this acrylic pouring art idea turns out. And without further ado let’s get started.

Well, what can I say? The cell reaction is absolutely mind-blowing. Like I just need to take a moment to look around and just really check out all the details. This is so cool! I added way too much paint. I had to blow some of it off. And usually I hate doing it, but you know, I’m learning with experience. I really like that I have some paint on the border of white here, on the edge the colorful paint. I think this pour painting looks really nice. I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
