The teachers at the guide dogs school for the blind maintained that they never particularly favored any student but there was some controversy as a portrait of one graduate was recently displayed in the non profit institution. Helping out a woman from Denver, Colorado is Jeannie the golden retriever and she is the one in the portrait. The remarkably good likeness of Jeannie was done by a professional artist who lost her eyesight a few years back. All these years, even before she lost her ability to see, it was painting that served as this artist’s release. When she could still see, a lot of her paintings would be on the scenes of Indian life in Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. Is the situation the same?
Before doing any painting, what is important is that she is able to think. If she did not have time to reflect, she will not be able to develop images in her head. Damaging her painting surfaces were the pins that she began to use in creating outlines of the images she wanted to paint. It is a good thing that she found another way of doing this process. Thanks for reading about paintings, and get even more articles at dog portraits.
For the portrait of Jeannie, she made a line drawing with a crayon on her canvas board. An outline has been made with a crayon and a paint brush in her right hand is used to paint inside the lines. She got Jeannie after some time of waiting and on this day, the instructor at the school described to her how Jeannie looked. The setting sun is what closely represents Jeannie according to her instructor, gold with brown and bronze. Per given time, she only uses two to three colors of paint and to tell the pigments apart, she smells them.
A small brush was used when she painted Jeannie, except for the part with the tail, she used her finger to paint it so that it will have that proud and fluffy appearance. According to this artist, she does not need eyes to see how well she was able to paint Jeannie the dog and she said this with much confidence in her voice. She adds that when the portrait was finally done and was showed to Jeannie, she growled and did a little dance. Obtain further advice on painting from photo and the subject of paintings.
There was no doubt in her mind that she did good. Even with a disability, the guide dogs school for the blind taught her how live can be lived productively. After they graduate, most of the former students are able to find decent jobs. Although it costs $1700 to train each man dog team, no charge is made to the blind that enrolls at the school which is entirely operated by voluntary contributions, usually in the form of an annual campaign.
