Poonam Malpani is Rad Educator for Acrylic Abstract.
Ready your colour pallete with the colours you would like. I choose bright yellow, orange, violet, mauve, scarlet, cobalt blue, and pink.
Pour the colours directly on your canvas or wooden board in circular waves.
My choice is not a brush, but a ruler here.
First, use only the smaller edge of ruler first and start strokes from the inside to the outside. After that use the longer edge and go in clockwise direction creating strokes.
Use your fingers to create a spiral in the center.
I'm now using gold and copper to cover the blank parts in background and highlight the center part.
Adding a few darker shades of brown and black wherever required to bring balance.
Watch the process video to have a better understanding of the painting technique.
