I started this painting differently. This time I did the outside negative space prior to pouring the paint. I wanted a definite contrast in both solid color and complimentary and value difference. I then poured the blues. I was aiming for cloud formations but got wave action instead. That's fine with me. I am fascinated by both. When the paint dried which took a number of days I added more dark blues by dropping down water first and then tapping acrylic paint on the water. This way it dissipates quite nicely and blends in. It was fun to do.
