how the rotundity is produced in fruit, all the patterns required sor two
cherries are drawn. No. 2. is applied first; the brush is used round the
circles, letting the centre be light. The essect os the sirst pattern
(No. 2.) is shewn in No. 4.; the efsect os the second (No. 3.) is shewn
in No. 5. No. 6. is the part of the leas in shade. Though there are two
colours there is no necessity for two patterns, as the shades are put on
with disferent brushes. No. 7- is part os the branch and the stalks os
the fruit. No. 8. shews the size and sorm os the brushes required in
this style of painting.

colours, will sind but little dissiculty in painting in oil, is a judicious
selection os colours, oil, &c. is made, as all the directions sor drawing
