[art] Fluid Painting

Was able to pour a few more fluid acrylic paintings last weekend.

First, I wanted a bright one with just white, red, yellow and blue:

That is my largest one to-date. I did two cups of colors and poured them across the canvas, rather than doing an upside-down pour. I love the large cells and bright colors.

Next, I tried an ocean-meets-beach pour:

I like it okay. Next time I might not add any of the oil to the browns- so it's not as dynamic as the blue/white. I swiped through the blue and used a straw to blow some of the white at the surf back onto the blue.

With the leftover colors, I just put them all into a cup and poured over a small canvas:

These "leftover" pours never disappoint, it seems. Not matter the color combo- it always looks interesting.

Oh, and one more planet:

These round ones are poured onto a wooden disks that are only 1/4 in thick. They kind of warp a bit as they dry. I have them all stacked up with a weight on top, trying to flatten them out. I would like to make them into clocks- but I will have to research more on clock mechanisms and frames.

The craft room is all tidied up and the paints and paintings have been put away:
