Great choice, Akita lover!
The Akita is a large and powerful dog with a noble and intimidating presence, originally used for guarding royalty and nobility in feudal Japan. The Akita is a fearless and loyal guardian of his family. The Akita is also an affectionate, respectful, and amusing dog when properly trained and socialized. The Akita is courageous; a natural guardian of his family yet is sweet and affectionate.
This Akita was created for a friend whose Akita was not far from doggie heaven. Painted on 200gsm Canson watercolour paper, I found immediately that I needed to create a sub layer for the Akita’s special fur in order to render the dog faithfully.
The original artwork is a watercolour with pencil detail. It has a plain white background and is 24 x 32 cm/ 9 3/8 x 12 ½ inches.
Each 300 p.p.i. digital print has a textured background and is 20.32 x 23.09 cm/ 8 x 10.66 inches. For digital prints you can request a plain coloured background to your colour preference if you would prefer it.
