Art has been the most fascinating thing humans have ever created. Both for entertainment and an object to appreciate, carrying different stories and messages, art as a still image we call painting has become one of the most luxurious and treasured pieces.
Painting had branched up into realistic and abstract. Nowadays, abstract painting has been the most popular among all painting styles that have been produced. The mind-boggling, enticing, and out-of-this-world combination of colors, lines, and techniques have been the reason for its vast popularity. One of the styles of abstract painting that is especially booming today is the colorful swirl painting, a fascinating painting idea that uses the process of paper marbling as inspiration.
One of the trickiest and fun style of painting. This art style is inspired by painting in water, and it has been derived from the art of paper marbling that existed as early as the year 850. Its procedure is having a shallow tray filled with water, and various kinds of ink or paint colors are carefully applied on the surface with a brush, until swirls of colors on the water become visible, the paper is then laid down to absorb the color in its swirl form in the water.
How to swirl paint in a classical way:
The “dip and drip” have been popularized nowadays to be able to enjoy the fun of doing colorful swirling.
Swirl painting has always been an abstract painting with the use of water and flow of the streaks it produces and makes a pattern out of it. Nowadays, any art, hand drawn or painted in a swerving motion, creating curls or swirls, are what most people know as swirl art or swirl painting. Such style of art is still considered abstract and closer to fantasy-style art. It comes in different styles of painting from water color paintings to acrylic paintings.
