Welcome to the new Royal Mandala Art – Mixed Media Paint Pouring tutorial. In this abstract art lesson, let's try combining the acrylic pouring technique with the mandala art using the stencil texture application. First I'm going to do acrylic pouring, let it dry and then embellish the base with the beautiful mandala stencils.
So, I'm super excited to work with that creative fluid art idea. "Concord" is a secret message for this fluid acrylic painting. I want to do something similar to one of the pour paintings that I did in the past. But I want to use a different color base, I want to work on a rich royal purple this time, and for the flow there will be different colors.

And as for my canvas, the size is 20 by 24 inches, so working on a pretty big one.
Tip: I always love looking from above, especially when I'm arranging the composition. It definitely helps to look from a distance and straight at the painting. When doing this imagine that each ring has a weight and you are arranging this weight on your canvas and your goal is to try to balance it out. So, without further ado let's see how this creative abstract art idea turned out!
I don't know what I like more about this pour painting, the base or the stencil embellishments. Probably, it's a combination of the two but both of the parts worked out so perfectly. I have already covered this abstract painting with varnish, so this is why you can see this light uniform gloss sheen on this whole piece. The copper shines so brightly, definitely has the flame kind of energy in it. And I'm so happy that I added the turquoise in a few sections of this fluid painting because it definitely brings more interest and life in this color palette.
I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Create with Passion!
