 A book which merits prompt and hearty recognition. . . . Mr Nisbet is himself an accomplished artist, and the book is the outcome of long years spent in the attempt to teach others the principles and laws of painting and drawing. . . . Mr Nisbet possesses such an enviable faculty of clear and attractive exposition that this little book is sure to make its own welcome.' LEEDS MERCURY.

A readable little volume. . . . The author has endeavoured to write out some of the strictly necessary rules and laws of drawing and painting for the use of students, so that they may be able to work at home, and spare their masters a number of questions if they are at art schools. The book deals with drawing and painting in water and oil colour, and concludes with " Hints on General Art." . . . Art students will, no doubt, find the little work helpful, and the general reader may dip into it with pleasure.' PALL MALL GAZETTE.
