Teaching is calculated to qualify the pupil in attaining all the

character, and expression ; the essentials to be observed in
Portraiture; the selection of subject ; the choice of light; the
adaption of back grounds; together with the vehicles adapted
for every style of Painting. The art of Flower Painting--in
outline; in light and shade, and colour; comprehending single
objects and groups; likewise their pictorial arrangement.

friends, may depend on the accuracy, as well as the finish of all
Paintings executed by him.
