When I came to Canada over 20 years ago I took Fine Arts for a year where I developed and explored my artistic side. Most of my art work was extremely solid, like there wasn't much room for being expressive and everything was heavy with solid colours. I remember that I was very jealous/envious of a student who had a more relaxed and fluid personality and artistic style at the time.
When I started fluid acrylics I liked how it was uncontrolled in a very controlling way to get the results I wanted. It is a freer way of expressing myself, I did not have to be so exact and paint within the lines so to speak. I still like my fluid acrylics being somewhat solid and you have to understand the density of colours, consistencies when mixing and how to layer the colours to get the best results. Anybody can do it, and I recommend that you try but don't be discouraged if you don't get the results you want in the first few tries, painting is like everything, it requires time/practice to develop a new skill.
