Day 25 of my acrylic pouring color theory series is seriously one of my favorites! There’s tons of contrast here between light and dark and between warm and cool. And there’s so much detail, ripples of lines and cells, just loving all of the movement and texture here!
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:
- Tetrad – Blue, Violet, Orange, Yellow
- Light Violet
- Traveling Ring Pour
All of the colors I used were mixed from the paint colors below. (Yellow and red for orange, blue and magenta for violet, white and violet for light 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 Blue
- Artist’s Loft Brilliant Yellow
- Artist’s Loft Brilliant Magenta
- Artist’s Loft Deep Red
- Basics Titanium White
- 8in x 10in canvas
- Rustoleum American Accents Gloss Clear (1 thin coat)
