Acrylic Paint Pouring can be a little frustrating to beginners because of all the variables needed for a technique to work well. When I was learning, I wrote notes on little paper pieces that ended up everywhere, including the trash. I wish I had a way to organize my notes so I could look back and remember what the heck I did! Introducing my ACRYLIC PAINT POURING PROJECT TRACKER NOTEBOOK!
I created my Acrylic Paint Pouring Tracker Notebook to help all artists organize their thoughts and notes into a traditional binder. It includes two versions of the cover page (one is printer-friendly), a detail page for you to list your project information, including an area to dab a bit of paint for future reference, notes, and photo page, and a page to list your favorite artists and their general contact information.

Acrylic Paint Pouring is so much fun but it can be a little frustrating trying to decide on what colors to use. Our time and resources are valuable but our art projects should be fun! I do love experimenting with color but there are times I also like to create a quick painting and have the colors already planned out. Selecting colors is just one part of the process. The order that you layer the colors in your cup or the order you pour your colors on your canvas is also important.
Trying to decide what color combinations to use can be a challenge and sometimes I feel like I overthink what to use. When I was first learning how to acrylic paint pour I had my color wheel out and I would select my colors by turning the wheel and selecting the different coordinating options.
I felt like the colors were “ok” but lacked something special. That’s when I started to look at the colors in nature. By choosing colors from photos or from the outdoors, my paintings started looking and feeling better.
As a special thank you for supporting my website and my art, I have created this free resource downloadable guide that contains the information and color schemes from our blog post as well as 18 additional color combinations that I have created from photos and images of our natural world.
