WATER-COLOURS BY MISS ST, JOHN PARTRIDGE

in three examples. The Sussex coast,
especially at and about Shoreham, is Mr,
Russell's favourite painting ground, and
in The Ferry, he has painted with delight-
ful subtlety of tone the picturesque and
typical row of Shoreham buildings, with
the watery foreground and a domina-
ting blue sky ; while the finely studied
sea and sky of The Sand Carters show with
how much pictorial variety the artist can
find fresh inspiration in a subject he
painted with distinction years ago. His
artistic susceptibility to the beauty of tree
life is seen here in The Olive Grove —
Mentone, but the painting itself will
doubtless be on view in the exhibition of
Walter Russell's work at the Leicester
Galleries during the coming month.

OF the different mediums at the disposal
of the painter, water-colour is perhaps
the one which admits of the widest variety
of treatment and offers to the executant the
fullest scope for personal expression. Even
the modern type of critic, who is very fond
of laying down the law about the way in
which a medium should be used and very
ready to pronounce every method illegiti-
mate which does not conform to the par-
ticular convention that—often ignorantly
enough—he chooses to prescribe, would
find it difficult to impose technical limita-
tions upon the painters in water-colour.
Traditions would certainly be too strong
