This is an entry for the Gallery of Fluid Motion of the 65st Annual Meeting of the APS-DFD ( uid dynamics video ). This video shows an analysis of the ‘accidental painting’ technique developed by D.A. Siqueiros, a famous Mexican muralist. We reproduced the technique that he used: pouring layers of paint of dierent colors on top of each other. We found that the layers mix, creating aesthetically pleasing patterns, as a result of a Rayleigh-Taylor instability. Due to the pigments used to give… Expand
