As A Local Colour Which Is A Technical Term For The Natural Colour

of an object, unvaried by distance, reflection, or anything interfering

with distinct vision; although, properly speaking, local colours are

subject to all the relations and effects of the places they occupy in a

composition--whether of light, shade, reflection, or distance.

From what we have said, it will be seen that the relations and harmony

of colours form a complex subject, requiring constant and careful study;

one, indeed, into which he who would become a colourist must enter heart

and soul. For as colouring is the beginning and end of a painter's

craft, so colour in all its aspects must be the chief lesson of his

life. And this lesson can only be learnt, by ever watching with a loving

eye those wondrous colourings of nature, in which there is nothing

inharmonious or out of place.
