Example text

The gross was bought and shared out with Hartrick, Phil May and Renouard. They were a delight to use, and it was a joy to give one away to anyone who could appreciate it. Phil May’s share was very little used, as a retriever he had at that time fell in love with them and the box, and chawed them to bits! There are, therefore, none or few of his drawings which show the characteristics of a chisel-edged pencil having been employed. Modern pencils are made of compressed black-lead-powder and clay in varying proportions according to the degree of hardness or softness.

If all these lines are kept of even length they will be the radii of a circle. If from the V’s drawn with the aid of a ruler the eight or ten which most nearly divide the space between the upright and the horizontal are chosen and the ends joined, it will be seen, that although the resulting line is in every part straight, the total effect is that of a continuous curve, hardly distinguishable from a circle drawn with the compasses. Curves I, II and III composed of straight lines, drawn with a ruler.

If the width of the angles is reduced still more, rapid curvature is the result. By increasing the angle of divergence the curve will become more rapid or even violent. If too much increased the angle will become obvious to the eye, and the sense of curvature be lost, but a divergence of 6° or even 12° (of from a minute to two minutes of movement of the hands of a watch) will maintain the character of a curve if there be a sufficient number of these divergences. In the stealthy employment of a scarcely perceptible angle often lies the life and beauty of a curve, and its character of vigour or languor, its speed or slowness.
