As to its composition, a scheme is here used that is very frequently possible and advisable, i. e., the making of a large light effect on the near portion of the building-not a small one, but one of good area. The color value of the brick wall and of the roof is ignored in order to get this large light. It is obtained by simply rendering thoughtfully around it.

Another item in the composition is the leading dark value, in the tree, repeated in less intensity in the doorways, windows, shadows, etc.

Note also that the work is rounded up agreeably, just enough to balance the values.

As to technique, strive for freedom in direction and to avoid a hard liney result. Wherever possible the sunny edges are not drawn in by a line, the rendering itself producing sufficient definition. Again, note the distinct values, black, gray and white.

As ever recommended, a free flowing line and method are used in every part of the drawing. On sunny edges (see buttresses) the line is omitted entirely.

As to difference in values, the black, gray and white are distinctly marked.

In composition, the large black of the tree is the leading accent, and its black is repeated in small areas in various parts of the work.

The subject affords as well a large leading light on the side of the tower, repeated also.

Again (and this is very important), the corners of the drawing are left untouched, which gives a quiet grouping of all the values.

Probably no draftsman living can surpass Herbert Railton in brilliant technique, the free use of line, and ingenious method. His work is especially adapted to architectural illustration.

It will repay good effort to copy this with care. This copy retains most commendably the spirit of the original. Observe the absence of purely gtraight lines, and the great freedom used in all outlines.
