More Use of the Acrylic Pours


I have really found it a challenge to work with acrylic paint using
the method of pours to see the actions of the paint interaction.
I have found that a lot of these stand alone beautifully while others
work so well as an under painting.

I think this stand alone paint with the golds, bronze and blacks works
well to give texture.  The under painting for the rooster was a pour of
red, blue and white which worked well to give an interesting background
and to have nice color "peek through" on the rooster's feathers.

Have fun with your painting to experiment with
different techniques to see if it works for you!
