I’m combining my love of lions with my love of the coral reef in this surreal acrylic painting! I’ve got tips on creating realistic looking lion teeth and fur and how to paint clownfish, tangs and tons of other marine fish and corals! You can use these tips for any skill level, beginner through advanced! We’re going to start by taking a look at the best palette for acrylics first!
