Improvisational skills to help create their own Paint Pouring masterpiece


Also known as paint pouring, flow art, liquid art.etc.

Is a form of abstract art that uses acrylic paints with a runny (fluid)consistency. The acrylic paints react with each other when combined together  to make interesting and visually  organic motifs. This type of art is fun for all ages. Fluid acrylics can be used on many types of substrates and in many different forms such as pouring, dripping, swirling, glazing, dipping and many other effects. Fluid art opens up a lot of possibilities and is definitely worth exploring and adding to your artist tool belt. In this course I will teach you everything you will need to become a paint pouring artist. I will share with you:

* Please Note! If you like a lot of talking this course may not be for you. When I create art I get in a trance like state and talking interrupts my flow. I do some voice over introductions and descriptions here and there but this course is heavy on visual content. I do a lot of pop ups on the screen that are full of helpful information and descriptions and I supply you with written resources as well.

  • How to set up your paint pouring studio on a budget
  • complete supplies list
  • share all the techniques that I use like; dirty pour flip cup, puddle pours, pre-lift slide technique, open cylinder, ribbon pour, swipe technique and more.

I will show you how to properly handle and care for your art

I will show you how to protect your artwork

The bonus section will have plenty of resources to refer to with information about mixing ratios, paint density and more

I will also share with you many techniques I use to embellish the work to give it even more visual appeal

I will show you how to price 

And tips on where to sell your masterpiece!

I'm here to help you become a confident Fluid Painting Artist..  Enroll in my Udemy Course Today!

I didn't care for most of his technique or finished product. I did like #23 and his pouring medium and his demonstration of his consistency. Most videos were not explanatory enough. No problem solving.

I’m a little frustrated with how little time he allows on certain things like the list of materials or the picture of the Fine Art Poring Medium supplies. I’ve had to rewind and pause to get a good look at them, which is a little frustrating to me.

I paid for another class which was disappointing. I love the fact you teach with visuals which makes it so much easier to understand rather than just lecturing on the subject. Love this class so far!

If this doesn't get your creative fluids going (no pun intended) I don't know what will! I'm really looking forward to putting what I'm learning into practice.....

The course talks about the various colours and mixing colours which I wanted to know. I would have liked some techniques on varnishing and also resin pouring.

O instrutor é bem didático dentro do objetivo dele. Minha expectativa era conhecer melhor o conceito por trás da Fluid Art que a própria técnica. Minha intenção seria usar este conceito no meu processo de criação de vídeos de arte abstrata da ZAP.ART (www.zap.art.br)

Yes. I have been pouring for 7 months, mainly using videos on YouTube. They are very helpful, but I want to see if there is something I have missed that would help me.

Great information and demos. The voice-over really helps explain the techniques but the background noise is a bit annoying. The tools for swiping and manipulating the paint are great. An explanation of the tools and what they are used for would be a great additional resource listing.

yes,it opened my mind to the many ways I can use the tools and paints that I already have.I am a oil painter, in the style of the old Masters,and want learn and use different kind of paints ,for different ,more relaxed style of painting.

This course gives you the start easy to understand as well as the details on continuing to master the techniques of Fluid Art to be successful. I've seen many Artist and this one beats them all. I would highly recommend this one created by Rick Cheadle. I really liked the fact that he takes you step by step but speeds it up to provide you with all the wonderful knowledge you need without taking hours and hours. Thank you Rick Cheadle for offering this.

The course was amazing and so was the instructor. But I'm not only a visual learner. When the message came up that we could also read what the instructor was saying I was happy. Then I tried to read some of that stuff. Well all I can say is good thing for talking because most of it was unreadable. This could has easily gotten a 5 star rating but because of spelling errors it got a 4.

Very efficient and concise presentation of the information. Nice use of visual examples. Very easy to understand for someone that is completely new to the technique.

This is a very comprehensive course and I really liked it -- a lot. Rick covered so many topics and his in-depth explanations on everything were a real plus. This course gave me a lot of ideas and I'm anxious to explore some of them. Thanks so much Rick for sharing all your knowledge with me. You inspire me.
