Quotation

IV. Having made your hand fit and ready in General proportions, then learn to give every object its due shade according to its convexity or concavity, and to elevate or depress the same, as the object appears either nearer or farther off the light, the which is indeed the life of the work.

Quotation

A piece of Silk, or Cloth hung, or laid flat, has not the Beauty tho’ the Colour of it be pleasing, as when flung into Folds ; nay a piece of Silk that has little Beauty in it self shall be much improv’d only by being Pink’d, Water’d, or Quilted ; the Reason is, in these Cases there arises a Variety produced by Lights, Shades, and Reflections.
There are, as I said, certain Colours less agreeable than others, as a Brick-Wall, for example, yet when the Sun strikes upon one part of it, and the Sky tinges another part of it, and Shadows and Reflections the rest, this Variety shall give even That a Degree of Beauty.
