* POURS/ABSTRACT *
Fluid painting, pour art, abstract, modern... there are so many different names we could give these types of paintings, but to save confusion, I'm calling them fluid paintings.
This style uses a wet canvas with very fluid paint dripped or poured onto the canvas, then either moved with compressed air, tilted on the canvas, swiped across the canvas etc, to create different effects.
This is a very addictive, fun way to create abstract artwork, and as you gain more practice, can manipulate the paint into a neat vision.
I absolutely love making these kinds of paintings and encourage everyone to try.
Acrylic and Paper on Canvas
This was created as a wedding gift. The grouping of lines represent the date of the wedding. The small round bits are punch-outs of the wedding invitation papers. The colors represent the metallic theme of the event. Not pictured are the edges of the canvas which are painted black with gold lines weaving around to symbolize two lives coming together as one.
Acrylic fluid painting on canvas
Created using very fluid paint, dripped onto the canvas and manipulated with air for the appearance of the mythological phoenix rising from the ashes below.
Created for a 20 year anniversary present.
Fun fact - no brush or other tool ever touched this canvas, only paint and air.
Drops of Time, 2021
Acrylic pour on canvas
4-8x10" canvases for a total span of 32x10"
This is a failure-turned-success painting. I wanted earthy tones, and was trying to get an infinity sign in my swipe of fluid paint. It almost worked, but not as much as I was going for. This set of 4 canvases sat untouched for weeks while I figured out what to do with them. I was just about to give up and pour over them when I decided to try and salvage with some drops. I love how it turned out. The earthy tones, paired with the droplets, of what could be rain, make for an appealing natural painting with a touch of whimsy.
