When I first started acrylic pouring someone showed me how to do the “tree ring” pour. I had to try one for myself and this was my results. It was kinda plain for my liking, but I just didn’t know what to put on it. I was thinking about painting a fish or a turtle but I felt like they had been over done. So I kept looking for animals in the water and this sweet little otter cried out to be painted.
I have always loved painting animals but was kinda fearful of trying to paint on top of my pour. Thankfully I have been following a group of amazing artists on Facebook, and with much encouragement I felt more confident in my approach. This little guy just wanted to be painted. Now I cant wait to embellish some more. And believe me there are more. Acrylic pouring is sort of addictive, you can’t get enough.
One hint I was thankful to learn is, if you want to paint on top of your acrylics you can apply a protective coating which will keep the under painting from washing away when you paint your embellishment.
Hope you enjoy this little guy. I sure enjoyed painting him and cant wait to try more.
