Day 23 of my acrylic pouring color theory series is a starburst swipe in a split complementary scheme. It doesn’t look like what I thought it would, but I like it. It draws my attention and really uses line in an interesting way that keeps the eye moving around the piece. The color scheme works really well here, and you can see each of the colors in the piece.
