Playing with Acrylic Pouring

I’ve only recently discovered this process, and I was blown away by some of the art I’ve seen done by this method. Inspired to try it, I bought the stuff, and then more stuff, and more stuff. Being a watercolour artist, a tube of paint lasts me for years, and I’m naturally mean, anyway, so this terrified me – acrylic pouring uses paint at an alarming rate. However, undeterred, I’ve had a go. Results pretty miserable to be honest, but the work of others drives me to keep trying.

This is the first piece I’ve felt pleased with. It’s inspired by a YouTube video demonstration by Julie Cutts of ‘Pouring your Heart out with Julie Cutts’ Facebook group. Look her up. When I’d finished it, it made me think of old painted boards, so I added a hasp and padlock.

I’ve called it ‘The Secret Door’.

I shall definitely be having a go at some more.
