let it remain on the surface

Take it out carefully, and press it between cloths or paper, so that no water may appear on the surface; but the print must be quite damp.

If they wish to become good painters, they must never indulge themselves in tracing what they have to copy; and they must study well the rules concerning distances and proportions. Sometimes you may wish to copy something that cannot be traced; sometimes it will be necessary to draw objects larger or smaller than your copyand what can you do then, if you know nothing about proportions f The power of copying correctly from nature is the most Tory Burch Flats desirable of all ao ceraplishraents; and in order to do this, you must have a knowledge of perspective, and practise in pencil drawing.
