Home is Where the Heart Is by LuxDani Home is Where the Heart Is by LuxDani
Whew, glad this is done.

A rather large custom painting for my friend's sister, of her boyfriend's Great Dane, Joya.

I LOVE that dog. Freaking GORGEOUS.

Got sick of this because I spanned it over too many weeks, trying to find time to work on it. Feels good to finish it. Feels even better to get replies like "OHMYGOD THIS IS AMAZING I LOVE IT" when you message the commissioner a pic. :love:

Its done entirely with acrylic paint, on an 11"x14" stretched canvas.

It is so bloody hard to take good photos of large, semi-shiny pieces. And pieces with straight lines. Regardless of how careful I was, the edges of the canvas bowed out, and the lines of the deck were shifted. Had to fix with photoshop, which I don't like doing.

Feedback appreciated!! :heart:

Wonderful painting! At first blush, it looks like a photo with all the detail you put into it.

The color palette you used gives it a subtle autumn feel. And, I agree ... that dog is absolutely gorgeous. Of course, I've been wanting a harlequin Great Dane ... but still. :-)

Your work definitely shows ... Excellent job. :-)

If I ever get a new dog after the one I have, it will most likely be a Great Dane :heart:
