Of course the solids do not necessarily occur lying flat on a horizontal surface, such as the ground.
He, too, who would master sketching in perspective, must certainly be able to draw from imagination Practical Drawing: a book for the student and the general reader. Wouldn't it be just as simple as working from the flat if the student could let himself believe that the visual rays from all the points of the object, or the view, were brought forward to a supposed plane directly in front of him? This plane with the object or view thus ideally outlined he would need merely to consider as a huge flat copy to be faithfully imitated The rules are few; but if carefully studied, they will be found applicable to every object occurring in ordinary experience Freehand Perspective and Sketching: principles and methods of expression in the pictorial representation of common objects, interiors, buildings, and landscapes.
Strictly speaking, there are but two foundation truths in perspective, namely Line : an Art Study. A short cut that the artist takes, while the mathematician goes round? Through and beyond lines, algebraic symbols, signs and formulae, it is the artist's trade The Art of Drawing in Lead Pencil.
Many people now concede the claim that it is actually possible to suggest "a sense of color " in a "black and white" drawing, and it is hoped that the notes in Chapter IX may at least convey to the student those principles upon which the claim is based Drawing for Art Students and Illustrators. This technical power or faculty, call it what we will, is not a conjuring trick, a mere sleight-of-hand to be learned as a series of "tips," but must be acquired, if at all, by severe training Handbook of Drawing. As the eye is the most important gateway of knowledge, so far as the physical world is concerned, it ought to receive great culture, even with only a utilitarian motive, for the time is rapidly approaching when drawing will demand its right place Trees and Tree Drawing;.
As the figure painter studies the nude that he may be able to paint the costumed figure, as he must know the figure within the clothes, so should the landscape painter study the naked tree in winter, that he may be able to paint it rightly in its summer dress of foliage The Sketcher's Manual or, The whole art of picture making reduced to the simplest principles. No good can come of such methods, for there are no short cuts to excellence. To this the reply may be given—quoting from Leslie's ' Handbook to Young Painters — 'that it is of the greatest consequence if it enables him to see better what he copies.
I do not claim to have discovered any new thing, either in the principles or possible applications of perspective science. But it has occurred to me, as I know it has occurred to many others with a similar experience in teaching drawing, that a book on perspective, which should be exhaustive enough to redeem the study from the contempt with which it is too often treated by artists — an estimate which is, to a considerable extent, justified by such presentations of it as are usually found in the "hand-books" and "text-books " in common use—and yet free, as far as possible, from the technical difficulties which the unscientific mind is pretty sure to encounter in the profounder treatises, might be of use.
When the author began to teach the elements of freehand drawing to technical students, and found it necessary to deal with the art of drawing associated with the principles of linear perspective, he was impressed with the fact that there was an unnecessary and undesirable antagonism between the two, which, when speaking of the one, required the other to be ignored, at the same time both had to be carried along side by side; the time seemed very long before the student might be permitted to view the mystery of why the one was dependent upon the other Elements of Pen and Ink Rendering rendering with pen and brush, elements of water-color rendering, rendering in water color, drawing from nature, the American Vignola.
These principles apply not only to pictorial representation, but to every kind of design. In general, composition involves three separate considerations — balance, rhythm, and harmony; and if work be executed in accordance with these principles it will result in a unity of effect that is satisfactory and restful, because all parts of the picture are consistently related to one another. The most important of these is the time of day.
To an outdoor painter—an expert examining the work of another expert—the hour-hand is written over every square inch of the canvas. He knows from the angle of the shadows just how high the sun was in the heavens, and he knows, too, from the local color of the shadows whether it is a silvery light of the morning, the glare of noontime, or the deepening golden glow of the afternoon.

Paint, oil and chemical review. Full view c. There are many opinions as to which is the most suitable, most of them formed by artists who get into the habit of using one kind. For instance, some prefer a coarse canvas, and others choose a very fine texture. I think the best is a medium grain, which will not show disagreeably the texture of the linen when painted, and which is not too absorbent.
It is better white, since it is quite an easy matter to give it a wash with spirits of turpentine in which a little burnt sienna is mixed to tone it to a softer tint.

These paintings, which, according to Vasari, illustrated the Life of the Madonna, have long since disappeared, and, with them, all certain evidence of the method of their execution; from the light now obtained, however, it has become doubtful, perhaps more than doubtful, whether any of the series were executed by the process implied by the modern term 'oil painting' Materials for a History of Oil Painting- Volume 2 ,.
It win not be necessary to assure those readers already acquainted with Sir Charles's habits of scientious accuracy and patient research that such habits are as vividly impressed on these chapters as on all that have gone before. To say "do thus and so" will not teach any one to paint. But there are certain principles which underlie all painting, and all schools of painting ; and to state clearly the most important of these will surely be helpful, and may accomplish something Painting in Oil ; a manual for use of students,. Whatever may be the special charms of other mediums, this must ever remain the one which gives the freest range to the capacity of the artist, and the most direct and complete facility in the representation of nature With this object in view I have divided the work into a series of separate lessons or chapters, beginning with a method of drawing which is not, I believe, usually taught, but which my own students have found useful as an additional aid to the knowledge they had already acquired Oil Painting, its Discovery and Early History.
A most beautiful invention and a great convenience to the art of Painting, was the discovery of coloring in oil Baldwin Brown, Published When these colors are laid on flashing and vivid in a disagreeable discordance so that they are like stains and loaded with body, as was formerly the wont with some painters, the design becomes marred in such a manner that the figures are left painted by the patches of color rather than by the brush, which distributes the light and shade over the figures and makes them appear natural and in relief.
All pictures then whether in oil, in fresco, or in tempera ought to be so blended in their colours that the principal figures in the groups are brought out with the utmost clearness, the draperies of those in front being kept so light that the figures which stand behind are darker than the first, and so little by little as the figures retire inwards, they become also in equal measure gradually lower in tone in the colour both of the flesh tints and of the vestments.

Having repeated these last experiments, I obtained from the dark green, light green, and purple enamels, results differing from the preceding in the gradation of color only. From the red I afterwards obtained a transparent glass of yellowish green colour ; from the black, a violet or amethystine glass. These iterations and anomalies, some of which throw light on the nature of the blue glass of the ancients, are to be ascribed to the greater or less degree of oxidation of the metallic coloring matters.

Download PDF from his website. The Guide to Oil Painting. The Painting Room Once mastered, effects similar to theirs grow easily and naturally out of the characteristics of this method of painting. This can hardly be said of modern direct oil painting. I have taken it for granted that the reader has, at least, a practical knowledge of the rudiments of drawing, such as may be acquired at any school of art. It is, of course, an absolute necessity that such should be the case before any attempt is made to paint from Nature.
My aim, therefore, has been to place before the student certain considerations which do not find a place in the curriculum of our art schools, and which should be of assistance to him in the progress of an artists' development. In that case, go ahead and begin. There is a great deal to be said for getting paints and brushes and starting to paint before reading the rest of this book. After even half an hour's work you will have experienced some of the delights of oil painting and have en- countered a few of the difficulties. But, before starting to paint, you must have some paints, some brushes, a surface to paint on, and a few other things.
Buy only what is really necessary; the initial stages are quite difficult enough without trying to learn how to handle a dozen different tools at once. Your requirements will be paints, 'thinners', brushes, boards or canvases, a palette, a palette knife, an easel, and a paintbox. Let us take them in this order See site info on downloading Download PDF pages and book. Oil Painting Methods and Demonstrations. A Manual of Oil Painting. As a rule the great painters have been too much occupied with their painting to explain to the world how their effects have been produced.
Indeed, it would seem that they have not always known themselves ; for when they have theorized upon the subject their theories have been often quite irreconcilable with their practice. Fortunately, they have generally had pupils who have carried on the tradition of their masters' work Illustrated on Plain and Colored Plates. For this there must be causes not wholly consisting in the difficulties of the art; and one cannot but imagine that some mistake has constantly pursued this large majority, and prevented them from perceiving in what the chief intention of painting consists, If you have already started to paint in oils, I hope this book will refresh your interest, and provide you with information, opinions, and ideas that I had not the time to give you on television.
If you are on the threshold of your first oil-painting, I hope you will find my book helpful. An Accidence, or Gamut, of Painting in Oil. The colourmen, to whom every thing is left, begin by brushing the cloth over with strong glue, to lay the flue, and prevent its absorbing any oil, as I suppose: then, with stiff paint, the greatest part of which is whiting, they plaster over the glue twice, seldom three times; it is then done, when the exciseman has stamped it.
In a very short space of time, if kept in rolls, it gets so brittle, that it would be as easy to unfold a manuscript of Herculaneum as this, without breaking or cracking in ten thousand places. If the picture be hung in a damp place, it comes off altogether, in great flakes; and in time, with the greatest care, it becomes covered with circular cracks, like net-work, for which there is no remedy. It ought to be prepared with very thin starch, and rubbed while wet with a rubber-stone, to lay the flue smooth, and painted with proper thin color several times: when the paint unites with the canvass, it is flexible, will never crack, and will endure for ages.
In Holland, and even Dublin, their cloths are far superior, and very pliable. Pigments At Dick Blick. Sinopia Historic Pigment Sets. Williamsburg Pigments. Schmincke Pigments. Handmade Glass Muller. Empty Paint Tubes. The Chemistry of Paints and Painting ,. During recent years they have given a great deal of attention to the examination of painters' colours, and have from time to time found some difficulty in obtaining reliable information on the subject. This led to a considerable amount of work in obtaining and examining specimens of pigments Among the means essential to proficiency in Painting, none is more important than a just knowledge of Colors and Pigments — their qualities, powers, and effects Safe Handling of Colour Pigments.
Long-term oral intake of cadmium pigments leads to accumulation in the human body, especially in the kidneys. On inhalation of sub chronic amounts of cadmium pigments, a small proportion of cadmium is bioavailable 1,3. Toxicity of cadmium pigments is nonetheless very much lower by several orders of magnitude than that of other cadmium compounds.
A description of the proper methods of distilling; resin-oils, the manufacture of resinates, resin-varnishes, resin-pigments, and enamel paints ; the preparation of all kinds of carbon pigments and printers' ink, lithographic inks and chalks, and also inks for typewriters, manifolders, and rubber stamps. PDF google. The Household Cyclopedia ,. Cases often occur when it is necessary to produce a gold color without employing a metallic substance. A color capable of forming an illusion is then given to the composition, the greater part of which consists of yellow.
This is accomplished by Naples or Montpellier yellow, brightened by Spanish white, or by white of Morat, mixed with ochre de Berri and realgar. The last substance, even in small quantity, gives to the mixture a color imitating gold, and which may be employed in distemper, varnish, or oil. When destined for oil, it is ground with drying or pure nut-oil, added to essence or mixed with drying oil To make Chamois and Buff Color. Yellow is the foundation of chamois color, which is modified by a particle of minium, or what is better, cinnabar and ceruse in small quantity.
This color may be employed in distemper, varnish, and oil. It is mixed with common gallipot varnish. For oil painting, it is ground and mixed up with drying oil. To make Olive Color for Oil and Varnish: Olive color is a composition the shades of which may be diversified. Black and a little blue, mixed with yellow, will produce an olive color. Yellow de Berri, or d'Auvergne, with a little verdigris and charcoal, will also form this color.
It is ground and mixed up with mastic gallipot, and common gallipot varnishes. For oil painting, it is ground with oil added to essence, and mixed up with drying oil. The Manufacture Of Earth Colours:. By DR. The Manufacture of Mineral and Lake Pigments, containing directions for the manufacture of all artificial artists' and painters' colours, enamel colours, soot and metallic pigments,. Known as Indian yellow or aureolin. It is distinguished from other yellow pigments by being unaffected by sulphurated hydrogen. The potassium nitrite required in the preparation of this pigment is most easily made by melting saltpetre in a thick iron vessel and stirring in fine iron filings in small quantities as soon as the saltpetre begins to decompose.
The iron glows brightly and burns to oxide, the saltpetre changes to potassium nitrite. The mass is dissolved in a little hot water, the solution filtered and cooled, when most of the undecomposed saltpetre crystallizes out, whilst the nitrite remains in solution. After further evaporation and separation of another crop of potassium nitrate crystals, the solution can be used to precipitate the aureolin. The book deals with fundamentals of paints, Varnishes and lacquers, pigments, Oils used in paints and varnishes, solvents, dryers, plasticizers, additives for surface coating, various types of paint manufacturing etc.
The book is very useful for new entrepreneurs, existing units, technocrats, technical institutions and for those who wants to diversify in the field of paints manufacturing.. Read Sample Chapters Online. Modern Pigments and their Vehicles ,. The Painter and Varnisher's Guide: ]or, A treatise, both in theory and practice, on the art of making and applying varnishes; on the different kinds of painting; and the method of preparing colors both simple and compound: with new observations and experiments on copal; on the nature of the substance employed in the composition of varnishes and of colors; and on various processes used in the art dedicated to the society at Geneva for the encouragement of the arts, agriculture, and commerce.
At present, that distinguished by the name of Venice turpentine is produced by a kind of larch tree very abundant in the Apennines, in part of the Alps of the Orisons, of Savoy, It is fluid, glutinous, tenacious, and of a consistence between that of oil and that of honey. It has a yellowish-white color, and a strong penetrating yet agreeable smell, When fresh it is liquid, and more transparent than that of Venice, but less viscid and tenacious.
Its smell is very agreeable, and has more resemblance to that of oranges than the smell of the Venice turpentine. It has nearly the same taste as that of Chio Oil Colors and Printers' Inks ; a practical handbook treating of linseed oil, boiled oil, paints, artists' colors, lampblack and printers' inks, black and colored.
The great technical progress that has been made in every direction has naturally made itself felt in the manufacture of pigments for all purposes. This has been especially the case during the last forty years Paint Making And Color Grinding , a practical treatise for paint manufacturers and factory managers, including comprehensive information regarding factory arrangement; pigments; vehicles and thinners; liquid and cold water paints as well as practical working formulas and recipes. Stephens A. Color analysis of a textile involves - the identification of the colorants and of the processes utilized to produce that color or hue on the textile, as well as the identification of the fiber material, the substrate, which can also influence the final hue produced.
Binding Medium, Pigments and Metal Soaps characterized and localized in paint cross-sections. Pigments that degrade under the influence of their local external environment can only be visualized in paint cross-section. For example, analytical imaging studies on a partially degraded smalt particle a blue potash glass containing a discolored rim and an intact blue core, indicate that an elemental exchange between the particle and surrounded medium occurred.
Molecular Studies of Asphalt, Mummy and Kassel Earth Pigments their characterization, identification and effect on the drying of traditional oil paint. This has resulted in a set of markers and biomarkers specific for the particular black-brown organic pigments that are further used to identify their presence in historical paint material collections or other reference samples of interest. In chapter 2 results on an asphalt sample from the 19th-century paint material collection are given Chapter 3 deals with mass spectrometric characterisation of an historical mummy pigment sample in order to assess a possible Egyptian origin of mummy pigment samples, seen as a Dead Sea asphalt containing samples.
Chapter 4 reports on the characterisation of Kassel earth samples and the identification of such samples as Kassel earth type. A few pigments however were organic in nature and were prepared from plants or animals. The vast majority of these coloring materials belong to the chemical classes of flavonoids yellow , anthraquinones red , and indigoids blue , with basic molecular structures shown in Figure 1.
Famous History Paintings
Their coloring properties are known since antiquity in many civilizations. Microspectroscopic Analysis of Traditional Oil Paint. ISBN Art from all periods and places is stored, conserved, studied, and admired in various museums. Paintings are studied by investigators in different disciplines: Art historians study the history of the visual arts, being concerned with identifying, classifying, describing, evaluating, interpreting, and understanding the art products and historic development of the fields of painting, sculpture, etc.
Art restorers or conservators are concerned with the conservation and repair of works of architecture, painting, from the effects of negligence, wilful damage, or, more usually, inevitable decay caused by the effects of time ISBN X. The knowledge on the effect of paint formulation on the composition, including the role of the pigments in the curing and ageing processes as derived from a number of analytical studies on oil paints Paintings are, in fact, subject to all kinds of chemical and physical processes taking place on a micro and molecular level in the paint layers that only over time eventually become visible changing the original appearance of the work of art.
Paints Quantified: image analytical studies of preparatory grounds used by Van Gogh. Cover illustration by Beatrice Marino. For example, technical studies have demonstrated that comparative investigation of self-made or ready-made picture supports of Van Gogh can help to establish a chronology for these pictures, or even prove authenticity.
The characterization of artist materials is also a useful aid for the understanding of the role and the influence of these materials in the stylistic evolutionary process of an artist. The Analysis of Paints and Painting Materials The authors are presenting in this book a series of selected methods for the analysis of materials used in the manufacture of paints On account of its cost it is rarely used in paints, and is liable to gross adulteration. It should show no bleeding on boiling with alcohol and water and no free sulphur by extraction with carbon disulfide.
A small quantity mixed with five or six times its weight of dry sodium carbonate and heated in a tube should show globules of mercury on the cooler portion of the tube. The best test for purity is the ash, which should be not more than one-half of 1 per cent. Make the determination in a porcelain dish or crucible, using 2 grams of the sample. Ash in a muffle or in a hood with a very good draft, as the mercury fumes are very poisonous.
It is seldom necessary to make a determination of the mercury; but if this is required, it may be determined by mixing 0. The Natural Organic Coloring Matters. The historical aspect of the subject matter and the scheme of classification are unfolded in the introduction, after which eighteen groups of natural dyes are described. The first chapter deals with the anthraquinone group, containing alizarin, the color principle of madder root Practical Hints on Dyeing with Natural Dyes : Production of comparative dyeings for the identification of dyes on historic materials.
By better understanding these properties, the artist can insure the durability and permanency of his creations and, also, give him a firm foundation on which he may begin to develop an individual style Facts About Processes, Pigments and Vehicles : a manual for art student.

In the following pages I have endeavoured to satisfy that need with, I hope, some small measure of success There are many paint properties such as covering or obscuring power, drying time, paint-film-hardness, film flexibility, color permanence, water resistance, UV resistance, ease of application, control of paint layer thickness, rate of chalking, mould and fire resistance, among others, that are able to be modified by varying the properties and proportions of major components and minor additives No attempt is made to record every known salt of every metal.
Consequently, only the metals of the six groups usually studied are included, together with their oxides, hydroxides and more common salts. To increase the value of the book for general reference, tables are added covering the acids, non-metals and rare metals. By Thomas Beacall; F. Challenger, Ph. Sc, B. Sc; and Henry J. Sand, D.

The committee then proceeded to a selection of minimum standards for tinting strength. The Paint Testing and Research Laboratory had prepared painted out panels of eight leading paints of each color.
These panels were numbered in code and the committee selected the one to be designated as standard. The members of the committee making the selections had no knowledge of what manufacturers' paints were being considered. The standards selected are to be duplicated and samples furnished to all manufacturers of artists' oil paints and, in so far as is practical, they will be available to testing laboratories and others who may be required to test artists' oil paints.
The blue is finished in the ordinary way. Dissolve the barytes and Croceine orange in water, and add the barium chloride.

Understanding historical recipes for the modification of linseed oil.
Opponents of this theory and have often suggested that the resins were contaminations from conservation treatments or varnishes that were applied on top of these paints. According to Van Eikema Hommes the existence of copper resinate is a myth. She believes verdigris was simply mixed with heat-bodied oil to which perhaps a little ready prepared varnish was added".
Industrial chemistry: a manual for the student and manufacturer, 3rd Ed. Chrome green is principally a mixture of Prussian blue and chrome yellow. When chrome green is used as a pigment it should be free from soluble salts, otherwise the soluble salts are liable to affect the linseed oil.
A paint which contains chrome green when used at the seashore usually bleaches, so that a paint for that purpose should contain chromium oxide as the pigment. Chromium Oxide. Chromium oxide is the only perfectly permanent green made. It mixes with every other pigment without decomposition and stands exposure to light without fading or darkening. It is unaffected by alkali. Zinc Green. Zinc Greens are usually mixtures of chromate of zinc and Prussian blue and are extremely brilliant and permanent to light, but not permanent to alkali or water. They are largely used in flat wall paints and for paints for interior decoration.
Verte Antique Copper Green. This is generally bicarbonate of copper. It is used for producing a corroded copper effect, known as verte antique.

The Practice of Watercolor Painting,. Illustrated by a series of twenty-six drawings and diagrams in color, and numerous woodcuts,. The diagrams and illustrations introduced are such as have been found most useful in elucidating the theory and practice of color in landscape painting, and at the same time in diminishing the labor of the pupil in acquiring this valuable and attractive art There are an immense number of works painted in watercolor which cannot be described as wash drawings. For instance Water Color Painting, a book of elementary instruction for beginners and amateurs,.
Painting in Water Colors. Should the drawing, however, be of a large size, a hog's hair brush, reduced to a point by a long application to oil painting, will answer the purpose better: but as a brush of this kind is seldom met with, except in the hands of an oil painter, one may be ground to this form upon a rough stone with water, and if skillfully managed will produce effectually the appearance of light floating clouds. As these differ in hue each succeeding afternoon according to the state of the atmosphere, the following colours, if judiciously mixed, will produce every modification of tint that may be required.
