Day 11 of my acrylic pouring color theory series is a high contrast complementary scheme with yellow and shades of violet on white. The composition of this piece is very balanced and interesting, and a piece like this could work in almost any room as a focal point.
If you would like to follow along with my 30-day acrylic pouring color theory video series, grab your very own color wheel and color scheme guides printable below and some paint!
Color of the Day:
- Complementary – Yellow and Violet
- Light violet
- Light yellow
- Dirty-cup pour
All of the colors I used were mixed from the paint colors below. (Blue and magenta for violet; violet and white for light violet; yellow and white for light yellow)
I used magenta for my violet hues because I think it makes a less muddy color because there isn’t a yellow undertone to it as there is with red. So if you ever want to make a very vivid violet color, go with magenta. I have found that I actually prefer the Liquitex Basics Quinacridone Magenta to the Artist’s Loft Brilliant Magenta.
- Artist’s Loft Brilliant Blue
- Artist’s Loft Brilliant Yellow
- Artist’s Loft Brilliant Magenta
- Basics Titanium White
- 8in x 10in canvas
- Rustoleum American Accents Gloss Clear (1 thin coat)
