Day 4 of my acrylic pouring color theory series is a beautiful abstract flower made from a bottle bottom pour. One of the more simple pours, this one is great for beginners and can be made absolutely stunning by simply choosing colors that go well together. My favorite part of this piece is definitely the organic shape, which is great to balance and soften any harsh lines you may have in the room.
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 down below and some paint!
Color of the Day:
- Analogous – Red, Red-violet, Red-orange
- Bottle-bottom pour
All of the colors I used were mixed from the paint colors below. (Red and violet (magenta and blue) for red-violet and red and orange (red and yellow) for red-orange)
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
- Liquitex Basics Titanium White
- 8in x 10in canvas
- Rustoleum American Accents Gloss Clear (1 thin coat)
