‘Suzie’

Here’s a recent acrylic portrait of my brother-in-law’s beloved Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Suzie.  She is a sweet natured little Staffie and had a tough start in life, but has now found her forever home and is showered with love.  I find it a little frustrating that this breed gets such a bad press in the media as the majority don’t deserve the reputation they receive, it’s usually down to bad handling and/or a lack of training.

The image was taken from a photo of Suzie sat looking out of a window into strong sunlight and I loved the way her eyes and coat shone.  The taupe background and slightly offset composition was chosen to concentrate the viewer’s eye on the subject.  I think I’m going to use this composition again, just need to choose another supermodel now!

  1. It makes me mad/sad when people call certain types vicious breeds. It’s all in the upbringing and understanding your dogs personality! Great work! Great post!
