Yummy, these colors make my mouth water. I’m using citrus colors today in bright yellow, orange, and green, plus some red and white. They also look very tropical to me, very Caribbean.
I’m still reluctant to go back to a dirty pour until I can be sure I have the consistency of my paints right because no one likes the muddy messy look I was getting when I started out. So today I’m adding the paints to the canvas in separate puddles, layering them up and then flowing the paint to create my shapes without too much mixing.
Still, as usual, my orange tries to take over! I’d love to get some feedback on this one, especially about my paints bleeding together like that, and secondly, when I torch why do I only ever get the tiny white cells popping through do you think? Clearly, I still need a lot more practice and experimentation.
Check out the video to see how I get on and then scroll down for the slideshow at the bottom that has more pictures of the finished painting.
Check out the slideshow below for further pictures, both wet and dry, and some close-ups of those mouth-watering citrus details.

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.
