My first trip to Aquashella, the aquarium festival and art event in Dallas 2019 plus how to paint an emperor butterfly fish in acrylics. This is a great project with lots of tips for beginners! I’m showing you how to layer and blend the paint and how to transfer your image onto the canvas!

It’s being painted on an 8×10″ Fredrix Blue Label canvas (sponsored).
