This is an image of acrylic paint that I placed at the top of a canvas. I used 7 colors and put them in a line at the top of the canvas. Then I tilted the canvas to point downward while I used a blow dryer to try to mix the colors naturally. As the paint began to dry, the movement became slower and mixing the colors became more difficult. So I added more paint and tried again but I had the same issue which was frustrating because I wanted to cover the whole canvas. I want to try to add water to the paint next time and maybe place the paints in a different location on the canvas.

I like the color scheme and the orientation of the flow as it flows from the top of the page to the bottom. It has really nice depth here as well.
Really nice abstract of colors, nice focus too
I enjoy how many colors you used in the image and how vivid they are. I also think what you did in post processing worked very well to give the image a clean art gallery feel. Nice Job!
The color scheme almost reminds me of a picasso painting!
I really like the textures that you can see in this photo. I think having the dried clumps in with the liquid is really interesting!
I like the crop on this image so the focus is concentrated on the fluid flow through the colors in the paint.
I like the shape created by the drips and hair dryer, I think it adds to the aesthetics. Paint is a shear thinning fluid, so that may be why a force from the hair dry helped it to flow.
