Well Coloured.
 
{Well Coloured.} […], for well Colouring, you may observe, that in all darkness there is deepness ; but then the sight must be sweetly deceived, by degrees, in breaking the Colours, by insensible passage, from higher Colours, to more dimme, better expressed in the sight of the
Rain-bow ; where severall Colours intermixt with soft and gentle distinction, as if two Colours where blended together.
{With Force, what it is}
Force, is the rounding, and rising of the work, in truth of Nature, as the Limbs require it ; without sharpnesse in out lines, or flatnesse within the body of the Piece ; and both these are visible errors.
{And Affection, what ?} Affection, is to express Passion in the figure ; Gladnesse, Grief, Fear, Anger, with motion and gesture of any Action. And this is a ticklish skill of the hand, for Passions of contrary Nature, with a touch of the Pensil, alter the Countenance, from Mirth to Mourning, as a coincident extream.
