The stalk is first washed over with a light tint os green, then shaded
with umber, and the dark spirited touches are given with sepia.



The student who has executed the previous lesson will find little
difficulty in this : the directions for drawing the sruit are the same;
the vine leaves which line the plate, and the leaves os the sruit, will
require some care : they must be sketched lightly till the grouping is
correct. The outline may then be strengthened, and a considerable
degree of light and shade given to the veins os the leas with spirited
touches, with the black-lead pencil; the lines will not be too dark
when coloured. The peaches should likewise be put in light and
shade with the pencil, as it will give the rough esfect to the sursace
which is dissicult to produce with colour. The student will observe the
ressected lights which give roundness to the sruit, and likewise the
lights on the most projecting parts, so that the whole may appear
round and spirited besore any colour is applied.
