Excerpt from The Camera: Or Art of Drawing in Water Colours
What a pleasing assemblage of renewed ideas present themselves, on reviewing our sketchbooks: the bold and majestic forms of mountain scenery, -the valleys and rivers beneath them at either extremity of which,perhaps, the mouldering castle commanded our veneration for antiquity, or the se cluded abbey our reverence: again emerging from these recluse haunts, into towering woods, where from transient to expansive views of lake scenery, we have been enraptured and delineated here taking shelter from the noon-day's sultry sun, and idly rolling over the green sward, we have loitered to enjoy the surrounding prospect. Every part of nature possesses charms for the attentive Artist, - the rugged heath, the streamlet's course, or the bleak rocky sheep-walk, have alike their beauties, and are but to be seen and traversed to be admired.
