Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Just Paint & Water Acrylic Pouring - Fluid Art

Let’s create a Sunrise Dutch Pour Abstract Art Tutorial For Beginners. This is very inspirational acrylic pouring video. What is the biggest source of inspiration for you when it comes to different color ideas for your pour paintings and other creative projects? For me it’s always nature. Nature is such an incredible and really unlimited source of inspiration. 


And every time when I’m looking for new color combos for my fluid paintings I like to look at flowers and gemstones. I also really love coral reefs. But this time I want to try creating abstract painting with the colors of morning dawn or even the sunrise. So, for this fluid art painting I have some Prussian blue, red-violet, and of course, some gold for the sun rays.

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.

Also I have a mix of white, red-violet and a hint of blue. And I want to add a small touch of really bright and vivid nickel yellow too. And I’m going to be working on titanium white base. I want to do a Dutch pour technique and therefore the recipe for this pour painting is: all of my colors are mixed with just paint and water to a pretty fluid consistency. I want to add my colors sort of a diagonal and blow out to the sides from there. Tip for beginners: Before the blowout I’m going to add a bit more white around the colors. That helps the colors flow more freely. So let’s see how this DIY wall art works. Let’s get started.

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!
