Day 17 of my acrylic pouring color theory series, a fun floating cup pour blown with a straw! Although a little muddy in some places, I’m very pleased with this painting. And if you’re looking for something floral-esque for your walls, this could be just the technique for you! This technique can bring in organic shapes and some fun texture to your walls that will really soften the space while being a great point of emphasis.
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:
- Triad Complementary – Green, Violet, Orange
- Floating Cup Pour
All of the colors I used were mixed from the paint colors below. (Blue and yellow for green, red and yellow for orange, and blue and magenta for violet)
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 Yellow
- Artist’s Loft Brilliant Blue
- Artist’s Loft Deep Red
- Artist’s Loft Brilliant Magenta
- Basics Titanium White
- 8in x 10in canvas
- Rustoleum American Accents Gloss Clear (1 thin coat)
