Day 26 of my acrylic pouring color theory series is a flip and drag pour with various shades of purple along with black and white. Much of the violet got washed out in this one, but what I love so much about this one is the formation of the cells and the movement they convey. And the underlying violet tone is just a fun, whimsical pop of color. If you’re looking for some wall art that is fun and a little funky, the flip and drag may be just the technique for you!

Color of the Day:
- Monochromatic – Violets
- 3 Shades of Violet
- Flip and Drag
All of the colors I used were mixed from the paint colors below. (Blue and magenta for violet, mixed with different amounts of white for the various shades of 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.
