18" x30" Acyrlic on Masonite

I haven't posted here for awhile, I haven't painted in acrylics in awhile.
This is about 90% done, I still have some tweaking to do

This is great! Well done! You should also post it in the animal and wildlife forum, they will give better critique for the subject. But I am pleased to see this here, it shows good depth perception. I really like the soft background, well, I like it all actually!!

Very nice, both giraffe and landscape. I like the way the giraffe seems to be looking at me.

Dave, this is fantastic!! I love the lighting in this and the feel of distance in the background. The giraffe is terrific!

dae very nice, indeed. While you are there tweaking...I would tweak the sky a little bit so it doesn't appear to be as flat as it is.

Thanks everyone!

Lady Carol- Tweaking does include the sky, but it is not as flat in real life.

Dave, Hello. Very good indeed. Are those weaver bird nests in the acacia tree?

Yes, those are Weaver Bird Nests, I made them larger and alittle rounder for design purposes
