Σελίδα 84 - ... colouring, (which see.) The modes in which taste is cultivated at Lyons deserve particular attention, study, and imitation. Among the weavers of that city, (as well as among those of the other great cities of France) much attention is devoted to anything in any way connected with the beautiful either in figure or colour. Weavers may be seen in their holiday leisure gathering flowers and grouping them in the most engaging combinations. They are continually suggesting new designs to their employers,...
Σελίδα 60 - ... into shade. In art, advantage is taken of this mixture of light and dark parts, not only for the facility with which it enables the draughtsman to separate the parts of a scene, but for the agreeable effects which may be produced by the judicious association and distribution of the light and shade. In the representation of a round object, it is only by a careful disposition of the light upon the convex part, and the truth of the attendant reflected light and shadow, that the appearance of roundness...
Σελίδα 84 - It is in the production of the patterns of silk goods, that the French have a decided advantage over the British ; they probably have little or none after the design is put into the loom.

Σελίδα 84 - Among the weavers of the place, the children, and everybody connected with devising patterns, much attention is devoted to every thing in any way connected with the beautiful either in figure or colour.

Σελίδα 54 - You may then vary your practice, by adopting other simple subjects of a similar kind, until you find you can do them all with ease. Before endeavouring to draw more than one leaf at a time you must know a little of perspective. The most simple mode by which you will...
Σελίδα 54 - ... through which it will lead them to view the most ordinary productions of Nature. She shall be their instructor, for all that we can pretend to do is to point out to them a practical mode of receiving her lessons. In the first place, let your attempts be of the most simple kind, and on as large a scale as you can conveniently adopt. Therefore, begin by procuring a black painted board or slate, of from two to three feet square ; and with white chalk practice the drawing of squares, circles and...
Σελίδα 54 - Next, by your circular and oval lines, you may form crescents, circular and flattened volutes, regular undulations, and other figures which arise out of their various combinations ; first making an accurate copy of each figure by measurement, and continuing to practice until you can form it by the eye with perfect ease.
