Day 5 of my acrylic pouring color theory series is a painting of a subject matter that is near and dear to my heart. As someone who has a degree in Wildlife Conservation and Management and worked in a lab studying birds for a good long while, I just love bringing nature into my home. And this acrylic pouring technique is such a fun way to do that. You can choose whatever colors you’re already working with in your space and bring them to life in a fun new way for your wall art!
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:
- Tetradic – Red, Violet, Yellow, Green
- Light violet
- String-pull feather
All of the colors I used were mixed from the paint colors below. (Magenta and blue for violet, violet and white for light violet, and yellow and blue for green)
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
- Master’s Touch Permanent Black
- 8in x 10in canvas
- Rustoleum American Accents Gloss Clear (1 thin coat)
