This series of seascapes and roses are done with fluid painting as base, then details are added with a brush. Fluid, or Acryliic Paint Pouring involves mixing the paint with additives to thin it it to the consistancy of warm honey, so that it pours easily. Dimethecone is added to create "cells" or textural bubbles. I poured four shades of pink onto the canvas and manipulated it with a spatula. Highlights are added with a stick, then the canvas is tilted for the paint to flow and move into the shapes I want. After it dries a few days, I go back in and work on the picture with my brushes, getting more details in the petals.
Each painting is a one of a kind piece, and some have more cells than others. Some of them get more brushwork than others, I try to not interfere with the cells that form, and if I do need to clean up an area with handpainting, I incorporate as much of the original pour as i can.
Since computer screens can change color tones, I'll try to describe the colors to help you get an accurate idea of what your new piece will look like when you get it in person.
If you'd like to try one of your own, I have a (badly edited) youtube video that explains the process of a seascape I did. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qdh5kSmHCyI&t=6s
Each of these is done on a wrapped canvas, which can be hung as is, or framed. You can see some of the paintings framed and hung here: http://karlascottage.typepad.com/karlascottage/2018/06/a-serene-mini-redo-for-the-master-bedroom.html

"Rose" has a background of gray and white with some golden, irridescnet powder as a highlight. The deepest color is cranberry, lightest is a bubble gum pink and white, there are blended shades in between, along with some of the grays from the background. I was able to keep lots of interesting cells in this piece by using a palette knife to swirl the paint into petals. Each petal was then handpainted around to add shadow and depth.
