Day 18 of my acrylic pouring color theory series, a open cup pour, is the epitome of movement. This technique has the potential to bring a lot of dynamic motion and energy to a room and would make a stunning focal point for any space.
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:
- Split Complementary – Green, Red-violet, Red-orange
- Open Cup Pour
All of the colors I used were mixed from the paint colors below. (Blue and yellow for green, red and orange (red and yellow for orange) for red-orange, and red and violet (blue and magenta for violet) for red-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
