Easy 2 Cup Dirty Poured Acrylic Landscape using House Paint Recipe in th...

Summer Vacation continues and I'm getting ready for the Eclipse in August 2017!

  Right now I have figured out how to do the rolling high desert of Eastern Oregon using Behr Premium Plus Ultra interior house paint in a 2 cup Dirty Pour. The Recipe is in the description below.

Now, I need to figure out how the dark sky of the eclipse and landscape will work together. l get to see the totality of the Eclipse as I'll be in the middle of the path! I'm so excited! I want to get the eclipse with the diamond ring effect and I think I'll have it all figured out before too long!

There will be a few more poured landscape paintings as I work out how to capture an eclipse in flowing paint!! I'm close to having it all figured out. 
For now I  have a great little landscape to share with you all! 

In this Fluid Acrylic Painting experiment I'm using only Behr Premium Plus Interior House Paint mixed only with Liquitex Pouring Medium.  (I'm not sponsored by anyone for this video)

There's some Dirty Cup pouring, Direct to Canvas Pouring, and some Swiping with a craft stick.

This time I used a little 4 inch x 4 inc gallery wrapped pre-gessoed stretched canvas and really you could do this on a board from the hardware store too! I just didn't happen to have one late at night when I was recording the video. LOL!

Craft Sticks (for stirring and swiping)
A Scale or measuring spoons that are just for the craft room--
small cups to mix up the paint
Acrylic Paint ( Dark Blue, Bright Yellow,  Bright White and Medium Green) I used Behr Premium Plus Ultra in these colors: Majestic Blue, Yellow Grove, Nano White and Banana Leaf)

Liquitex Pouring Medium- It can be expensive and if you have an alternative medium you like--start with my recipe and substitute your choice of alternative mediums and then experiment until it works for you. :)

Recipe for All the Colors is the same ratio of 1:1 -- I used 20 grams Paint mixed with 20 grams Liquitex Pouring Medium. I did NOT add any water or Silicon oil to any of the paints. 

There's no silicon oil or torching in my projects as I am concerned about the longevity of the art work and about the possible long term side effects of heating the acrylic paints and any additives that the materials they are made from. 

We all have to weigh the pros and cons of how we interact with our art supplies. Experimenting can be exciting and beautiful but there can be consequences we don't know about yet. As with any thing in life be informed by reputable sources and your own common sense. :)

The most important things you need to be successful with any of my creative projects are the willingness to learn and to be easy on yourself as you are learning. We tend to be our worst critics and we need to learn to be kind to ourselves.
