VERVE FLAMES 

Overflow Acrylic Pouring 🔥

Acrylic Pouring Tutorial by Olga Soby​

Hot Red Color Palette Fluid Art ~ Abstract Painting | Flow Art

Welcome to new VERVE FLAMES Overflow Acrylic Pouring video tutorial. Let’s create a vibrant overflow abstract painting with hot red color palette. In my last fluid art video tutorial I did acrylic pour painting with a new layout, and I absolutely loved how it turned out. So I decided to do the whole series with this vibrant overflow look exploring different color palettes and variations. 


And this time it’s all about the reds. “Verve” is a secret message for this flow painting. And one color that I will use for the negative space part is Prussian blue. This color dries really dark like almost black. But because it has some blue pigment in it, this blue will actually make my red colors look even warmer, even more bright.

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.

This is why I chose Prussian blue instead of black. Plus in those sections where it overmix with white and red, it will give me interesting shades of blue and violet. I just want to have my Prussian blue in one corner of fluid painting, and the rest is going to be a red, hot-hot red. Also I will not align my red colors in gradient order. I want to have it more random, and the main color would be red-violet. I think it should work just perfect. Let’s see how this acrylic pour painting will turn out, and without further ado let’s get started.

I think that “Verve Flames” makes just a perfect name for this pour painting. It’s hot, bright, moving, very inspiring, and yet very mysterious at the same time with all this darkness and depth in the colors. Especially that some of the colors dried a lot more transparent and deep. What I love about this flow painting is all this curvy movement. I really love how the gold shines and the spots of yellow, it creates perfect accents in whole abstract painting. I also really like section where the border between the main flow and the negative space. It’s so transparent, it almost vanishes in the dark, but it’s so flowing and all these elements, they look like flame sparks to me. I think that’s what really makes this fluid painting especially dynamic. I hope you enjoyed the process and looking forward to hearing from you! Happy creating!
