MR WATTS AS A PRACTICAL PAINTER.âMr Watts 1 in his method of painting shows the same origin, ality and serious purpose as in his design, preferr- ing to lay his tints side by side, like mosaic, to painting one over the other. He mingles th< m, of course, at the edges; but he never puts light oe bright colour over darker. He nevar, when he can avoid it, mixes white with transparent hues, but makes the substance of his colouring of those that have the greatest transparency and least body: his theory being, that when in course of time the preserved brilliancy of the ground tells through, his pictures will have the quality of stained glass. He is also careful that his colours should in them- selves be beautiful, and he lays them on thick and dry, with very little medium. It may be inter- esting to state that the medium he uses is liuseed oil, if necessary diluted with some essential oil. How far his theory is justified by the event is illustrated by eeveral of the pictures exhibited, which, though he has not touched them since they were painted, are far fresher in appearance and more luminous in colour than most ef his latter works.-From "Cosmo Monkhouse" in The Maga- zine of Art for March.
