Outline or transfer the subjects as before mentioned. Moisten the terra-cotta, and absorb the superfluous moisture with blotting paper. Mix the colors with Chinese white, and use with them the terra-cotta medium already mentioned. For the blues, yellows, carmincs, and the bright colors, coat the parts thickly with Chinese white, using plenty of medium when quite dry, add the pure, bright colors. Wash them carefully over the white, mixed with medium, in order not to rub the latter up, which would lessen the eSect. When finished and thoroughly dry, varnish with copal or mastic.

Base in the undertone of the horse with a light application of Orange. With Terra Cotta, create the patterns of muscles and contours of the horse's body. Where the light heavily reflects off the shoulder of the horse, it resembles the ripples seen in a moving body of water. Use Terra Cotta to build the dark areas here and add color to the mane.
To create interesting reference photos of the bottle, I took it outside and placed it on the steps in her backyard. Notice the blue of the sky reflecting in the glass, and the colors of terra cotta tiles shining through. I used a heavily burnished approach in this drawing to make the colors shiny and vivid.

Terracotta color displays its surface textures black and the intense blue of the sea, in this version of the jug, which also plays Drawing is illusion, and your choice of subject need not be constrained by what is really out there. The subject of this drawing is a group of real terracotta objects -archaeological finds - combined with a photograph of a classical Greek scene. The two subjects are unified by harmonious composition and by the deliberate use of a restricted color palette. The warm brown and terracotta pastel pencils are sympathetic to both subjects, conjouring up both a sense of antiquity and earthy texture, and of the burnt Greek summer landscape.
Owners, the features such as doors, doorways, railings and windows can be altered quite easily and therefore allow residents to personalise their homes. For this reason I have devoted some pages to making studies of windows and doorways. Terracotta pots and flowers are frequent additions to urban and rural houses, and can add a welcome flash of colour to an otherwise dull wall. Also, look out for the decorative architectural elements plaster surrounds and decorative brickwork can frequently be found in residential buildings, and are attractive features to paint.
