I’m so enjoying the swiping technique right now. I still have a lot to learn and a lot I want to try, but while I’m having some success I’m going to stick with it and try out some different colors.
The last blue painting came out a little dark so I’m lightening up the colors a little, bringing in a different blue to add to the silver, and adding a little white to the dark blue/green mix I used before. This time I’m going to take better care of the canvas so that it doesn’t tip and lose the shape while it dries.
It’s my best so far I think. Here’s the video and scroll down underneath to see some pretty shots of the painting and the details. Thanks for watching.
Scroll through the slide show below to see more photos and more details of this painting. And don’t forget to pin this article and video for later – there’s a handy Pinterest sized image at the bottom of this article and a Pinterest sharing button right underneath.
After being told in high school that she was so bad at art that she should switch to another subject, Deby didn’t paint again for 35 years. Then a stroke released a new wave of creativity and she began exploring with dot painting, abstract and eventually acrylic pouring, and at last the joy of working with color returned.
You don’t need ‘talent’ to be an acrylic pouring artist – just enthusiasm, some basic instruction, and a willingness to try, fail and try again. Paint along with her and learn from her many mistakes, and you’ll soon make great art together.
