The painting that fell on the floor

Well, you can guess from the title what’s coming so no surprise there, but I hope you will stick around and check out these glorious colors. I usually work with a reasonably small range of colors so today I have splashed out and gone crazy with some super bright ones – makes me very happy – well until it fell on the floor anyway.

All those delicious colors in the flip cup

Materials used in this painting:
DecorArt Americana Multisurface acrylics in Bright Orange, Chartreuse, Cotton Ball white, Purple Sunset, True Red, Deep Midnight Blue and Indian Turquoise
Floetrol
Coconut Milk Hair Serum
Canvas from economy pack

Recipe:
For each of the DecoArt colors, 15g of the paint plus 10g of Floetrol. 1 drop of the coconut hair serum per color. I could probably have used less oil. Maybe 4 drops overall would have been enough for this small canvas.

I don’t even have any photos of it to share because it fell on the floor before I’d taken any. We all have days like this. More time spent cleaning paint from every surface and myself and less time left to paint. But the colors were good and I still have paint left, so I will certainly try these again. Look out for another painting using these colors in future and hopefully next time, less mess, more smiles  🙂

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.
