After the success of my first swipe (here), I had to give it another try. I’m fascinated by the sea, and am lucky enough to live on a tropical island with the sea right outside my window, so it’s only natural that I would want to use a lot of blue in my art.
Here I’m using blues and white, with a hint of silver and some yellow. I do mess up again by not properly wiping off my swiping tool so I make a bit of a mess on my white at the top, but I get great cells and I love the way the blue at the top bleeds into the white. Totally gorgeous. That’s it – I’m officially hooked on pouring!
I’d love for you to subscribe to my YouTube channel. I need 100 subscribers before I can pick a channel name. Thanks.
Here’s the finished painting – love it!
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.
