THRE Art of Painting has been usually treated under four distinct heads, viz. Composition. Design, or Drawing. Expression, and Colouring. Each of which may, in some measure, be applied to Land- scape Gardening, as it has been treated in this work. Composition, includes those observations on utility, scale, per- spective, &c. contained in Chap. I, and II. Design, may be considered as belonging to the remarks on water, wood, fences, lines, &c. contained in Chap. III, IV, V, VI, and VII. Expression, includes all that relates to character, situation, arrangement, and the adaptation of works of art to the scenery of nature, which have been discussed in the remaining chapters of this work; and lastly, Colouring, so far as it relates to certain artificial objects, has been mentioned in Chap. XI.
