In this tutorial, I want to create a beautiful Triptych Ocean Splash Acrylic Pouring with the traveling funnel technique, and also, I’m going to do some blowing for my flow. So for the colors – this is going to be mainly ocean-inspired colors with a few bright accents with warm colors. And this is going to be a color split. I am super thrilled about this fluid painting.
All of my colors today mixed with water only. All of these three panels are 8 by 24 inches. This is a cradled wood panel primed with gesso, tape the sides, and colors are pretty fluid consistency.

My color split base is going to be white and light blue. The bottom of my base is going to be blue, and the top is going to be white. I want to start by adding a secret message, and I’m just want to use blue color for creating the secret message. But these words are not meant to stay. They blend into the base. I do them to put a special meaning in these paintings. So “bliss”, “joy”, “love”.
Today’s traveling funnel technique hasn’t worked out exactly as I wanted, so I had to improvise. I changed the fluid painting technique to Dutch Pour, and I’m happy about the outcome. As Bob Ross said: “There are no mistakes, just happy little accidents.” I think this is why it’s so important always to trust your creative intuition and follow your heart, and not be scared to change things up. So, make your happy little accidents😉
I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
