The study of painting as an art is based on three considerations: form, light and shade, and color. This volume teaches students how to use the brush and manage a single color and an additional tint, thus preparing the student to enter a course in watercolor painting. This volume is not dated, but 15 editions were published between 1875 and 1925, and this is not the oldest edition we've ever handled.
