Most folks just stick to classical white pouring painting backgrounds. It is just easy to work with. White paint is like super cheap. Sometimes you see black backgrounds, but not often other colors. I mainly used black backgrounds for these sets of acrylic pouring paintings. They where useful for making the colors stand out. Colors tend to look a bit more muted when placed against white backgrounds.   So, if you are working with patterns a black, or any other colorful background might be useful. This time, I did not do a video tutorial.   I am not a big...

I recently felt like doing some pouring paintings. I was so happy to try that artform again, that I also did a few video tutorials. I wanted to show the voices in my head that I knew how to do pouring painting properly. I did about 7 videos. I actually made more paintings than videos.

I then decided to not record the other 5 paintings that I made.   You get the gist of the pouring...

As far as the subject matter is concerned, I wanted to do places I have not been to. As of lately, I have been practicing watercolor paintings. I like painting with watercolors. They are pretty easy for me to manage. I don’t have to wait forever for things to dry. As I work with them, I figure out new things. I also did a bit of acrylics on the side. Whenever I wanted...

For the last month, I have been working a bit on my pouring paintings. I had already some pre mixed pouring paints.   Still, the paints said you needed to get some medium into them. The medium everyone online kept pointing to was floetrol.   I got myself a bottle of it to try it out. I can easily say that it was not my cup of tea. It had a compatibility issue with all my paints.   This sucked considering the fact that I had plenty of paints to choose from. I tend to get from a bunch of...
