Study the strokes given on the previous page, plate 15, for suggestions for sketching this cabin. Those at No. 2, No. 3, and No. 4 will be found helpful.

Use stroke 4, plate 15, for the outline of the roof and the sky, and add the smooth vertical or horizontal strokes for the sides of the building. Accent here and there with the point of the chalk and add details in a similar manner, but avoid a definite outline. Let the difference in tone make whatever outline is necessary.

After erasing the spots for doors and windows, add the strong dark tones with a bit of charcoal. The details at 1 and 2 on the plate will show how these are made. No. 3 shows the treat­ment for the roof.

After erasing for the trees, add a little charcoal and chalk, using the strokes given in the lesson on trees, plate 12. The grass and the details in the foreground may be added last. The sketch will readily show the strokes necessary and the movement of the hand in making these strokes.
