Day 7 of my acrylic pouring color theory series totally reminds me of a martian beach landscape with its rippling tides, flowing water, and foamy edges. This type of piece has the ability to bring so much texture into a room that it could easily become a focal point.
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:
- Tridadic Complementary – Orange, Violet, Green
- Light violet
- Light orange
- Funnel Pour
All of the colors I used were mixed from the paint colors below. (Magenta and blue for violet, violet and white for light violet, red and yellow for orange, orange and white for light orange, 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.
