Acrylic paint is a versatile medium that can be used for a variety of projects. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to paint a black sea lion in acrylic.
We'll start by mixing our black paint. To do this, we'll need a tube of black acrylic paint and a mixing tray. Squeeze a small amount of black paint into the mixing tray, and then add a little bit of white paint. Use a palette knife to mix the two colors together until you have a consistent black color.
Next, we'll load our brush with black paint. To do this, dip your brush into the black paint and then tap it on the edge of the mixing tray to remove any excess paint. Once your brush is loaded, begin painting the sea lion's body. Work in small sections and use long, even brushstrokes.
As you paint, you may notice that the black paint begins to dry quickly. To keep the paint workable, mist it with a bit of water from a spray bottle.
Once you've finished painting the sea lion's body, let the paint dry completely. Then, using a smaller brush, paint the sea lion's eyes, nose, and mouth. For the eyes, use a small amount of white paint to create small circles. For the nose, use a small amount of black paint to create a small oval shape. For the mouth, use a small amount of black paint to create a small curved line.
Let the paint dry completely, and then step back and admire your work!
