A FEW PRACTICAL INSTRUCTIONSFOR YOUNG PAINTERS.An outfit of water-color paints and brushes is, of course, the first requisite. Goodboxes made of porcelain-lined tin, the cover serving as a tablet on which to mix the colors,may now be obtained at a low price from almost any stationer or dealer in artists' supplies.The following colors are the most desirable, and will all be found useful, though somemay be dispensed with: Ivory Black, Sepia, Burnt Sienna, Vandyke Brown, Ultramarine,Prussian Blue, Crimson ILake, Vermilion, Light Red, Gamboge, Yellow Ochre,Emerald Green.There are three colors-RED, BLUE, and YELLOW-which are called primary, or simplecolors, because they cannot be made by any mixture of other colors. These three areindispensable for any complete scheme of coloring. Other colors, called compound,may be made by mixing, as follows:GREEN, " by mixing .- BLUE and YELLOW.PURPLE, .. .. BLUE and RED.ORANGE, .R " .. .. RED and YELLOW.GRAY, " " PRUSSIAN BLUE, LAKE, and SEPIA.Mix the colors with clean, clear water, changing the supply as soon as it gets muddy.Keep the color of your paints pure by not allowing them to come into contact with oneanother, and by cleansing your brush thoroughly of one color before applying it toanother.Clean your brushes thoroughly after using, as they do not last long when laid asidewithout being washed. Never leave them standing in the water.A rather large brush should be used for the greater part of the painting, the smallerbrushes being reserved for the finer finishing touches.V'" I Take plenty of color on your brush, and try it first on a piece of paper to see that it isthe right shade, and that the brush is not too wet nor too dry.Begin at the top and color downward, always using plenty of water in your brush, sothat the color may not settle in patches, and appear to have been dragged over the paper.A hard line, or the edge of a color, may be softened with a clean wet brush.Let one color dry before beginning on another, and never touch a tint when it is oncelaid on until it is quite dry.A cold color which is to serve as a shadow to a warmer one should be laid on first, andthen the warmer color put over it. Blue is the coldest color. Lake is a colder Red thanVermilion or Light Red, and Gamboge a colder Yellow than Ochre. Orange is the warmestcolor, and Red and Yellow are warm in proportion as they approach the Orange tint.A very little soap will aid in spreading on the colors.
