Almost as much as I enjoy painting, I love teaching others how to create their own acrylic pour paintings. There is such freedom in learning to let go of control, and I have found that practicing fluid art has been the best way for me to practice letting go of control, and finding the beauty in what is. I have dedicated my YouTube Channel (Becca Harkins Art) to sharing my painting journey with others, and teaching as I go.
Using a hair dryer as my primary painting tool, the flow of the air across the paints below gives a stunning fluid-like quality to the painting.
Like a burst of water spraying up from the sea with a burst of energy. This painting is from my transcending light series that explores the juxtaposition of the split canvas composition.
Would you like to learn fluid art? Do you struggle to find the right consistency for your paints? In this video I'll give you an up-close, detailed look at how I mix my paints with American Floetrol.
