Possibilities of Scene Painting

“Finally, it must be borne in mind that scene painting is hard work, both physically and mentally, and when indulged in every day will yield all of the physical culture necessary to the promotion of good appetite and sound sleep.  The work is fascinating and full of interest to those filled at all times with enthusiasm and the desire to excel; if you are not so constituted, it would be better not to make the effort.  Scene painting will promote all of the latent talent you possess and reward you in exact proportion to the ability and talent developed.”

Excerpt from Frank Atkinson’s “Scene Painting and Bulletin Art” (1916, page 201)
