This plate was
planned as a review lesson, as well as to give illustrations which teachers
might use for a great variety of purposes. All these strokes have been given
before and are easily applied.
For the turkey,
sketch lightly a circle; then with the side of the chalk add broad, gray
strokes. See No. 1. After this is done, add short touches with the side of the
chalk, for the wings, legs, feathers, etc.
Stroke 2 was given
on plate 2, and, with the addition of the little slanting and curving strokes
here given, will produce the lighthouse. This sketch will perhaps be useful in
connection with plate 9, in teaching the seacoast.
Strokes 3 and 4 are
similar to those given on plate 5. They are made by the use of curving strokes
with the side of the chalk, the accent being upon the end forming the outline.
This stroke is frequently used, the object to be drawn dictating the direction
of the stroke. Apply these strokes in drawing the rat, the chickens, the
mushrooms and the frog.
In the tree sketch,
a background of gray is first drawn with the side of the chalk; then the
strokes given on plate 6 are applied with charcoal, and the snowflakes added
with strong touches of white chalk. If the candles are desired, omit the mow
and use tiny strokes like those at 5.
No. 6 is desirable in representing the nest.
After 6 is drawn, add stroke 4 for the eggs and finish the nest by using strong
touches with the point of the chalk.
