On to the next of my acrylic paint pouring beach-themed paintings with this wave pour. I thought it would be interesting to make a series of paintings of different aspects of the beach using the same colors in different proportions and placements. In case you haven’t already, go check out the first and the second of the series, Beach Sunset and Beach Scene.
I created this painting with two separate pours with drying time in between. First, I did a flip-cup pour for the sky, and then I did a swipe with a baby wipe for the water. I added a bit of the sky colors at the top of the water to try to emulate the effect of the reflection of the sky on the water.
As with my last painting, there was some cracking in this acrylic paint pour painting, which I think is due to the thickness of the paint, and the combination of using latex house paint and acrylic paint. But I still really like it!

Overall, I’m happy with this painting, and I think it was good practice on the wave pour technique. I also got some new ideas for what I want to do next in this series, so stay tuned and happy painting!
