To give these pictures finish after they are painted, it is advisable to outline them,
that is to say, go over all the printed lines of the picture with either a darker shade of the
color to be outlined, or a dull, reddish brown, which gives a still more decorative effect.
In painting bricks and stones, a great deal depends upon the way in which they are col-
ored. They may either be colored a uniform red, which is uninteresting and ugly, or the
reds may be varied sometimes, one brick being almost brown, another pale red, another
orange, and so on. There is infinite variety in an old brick wall. The same thing may
be said of the olive greens in the flowers and grasses. A great many rich tones are com-
prised in the one color, olive green. These directions for coloring are merely given to
help the beginner, who does not yet trust his own eye for color, but it is hoped that, with
their assistance, the colorist will soon learn to combine for himself, and may ring an infi-
nite variety of changes in harmonies of color. The beginner will gain much valuable
assistance in coloring from a little' book published by the publishers of these pictures,
entitled Introduction to the study of Drawing and Painting in Water Colors." Price,
50 cents.


THE words "light" and "dark," dull" and "bright," are used in opposition, respectively.
A light tint is obtained by thinning the given color with water, a dark tone by putting
several washes over one another, always allowing the first to dry thoroughly.
When a bright color is wanted, use the color from the box without mixing with any
other color.
The dull tones are given in the list :-
AUBURN: Gamboge, light red and Vandyke brown.
"BLACK: Sepia, indigo, crimson lake or Vandyke brown and Prussian blue.

The Cups in the Lid are available for preparing large washes, and the Palette Flap

These are not Toy Colors, but have been manufactured for us in London for the use
of Art Students and beginners in Water-Color Painting, for which purpose they are
equal to the best, and it will require an experienced artist to detect any difference
between them and the most expensive pigments. These ten colors, with their com-
binations, will be found all which are absolutely needed by the student and beginner.
But for the convenience of those who may wish for other tints without the trouble of
mixing, we can supply the following colors separately at Six Cents each:

Studies in Sepia,


First, The Outline.
Second, The First Wash.
Third, The Second Wash.
Fourth, Finished.

They are on Whatman Paper, prepared for Water Color Painting,
and are intended as easy practice lessons for the beginner in Drawing
and Water Color Painting. The idea is for the pupil to copy each
stage, beginning with the outline, which is to be done with the lead
pencil as a drawing lesson, and following with the 2d, 3d and 4th
stages in color.
The price of each set of four cards, the three last colored by
hand to serve as correct copies for the pupil is . . ... 50 cts.

Since the publication of our series of Outline Design Cards for hand
painting, we have received so many enquiries for a book which will give easy
lessons in the first principles of drawing and painting, that we have begun the
publication of a series of books, intended to be SELF-INSTRUCTIVE.
Part 1, Introductory to the Study of Drawing and Painting,"
Begins with a list of materials required to commence the study-their cost
and where they may be obtained, followed by some easy lessons in drawing
and painting, in which the pupil is told just what to do, and how to do it, so
that he has only to practise the lessons to perfect himself in them. Price,
50 cents. Sent by mail to any address. Other and more advanced parts
will follow.
