The dog rose
THE DOG ROSE. I HAVE reserved this for the last Plate, not particularly on account of its difficulty, but because the number of leaves, buds, and minute parts, render it a longer task, and require some pains to sketch accurately. This flower affords an excellent lesson in the art of softening: and I can assure the student, when this is well attained, there is scarcely any difficulty which practice alone will not overcome. I cannot suppose that you can be at any loss in mixing the various tints, &c. after what has been said, especially as in my Treatise on Flower Painting such ample directions have been given.
