Penned on the 13th Day, 8th Moon, 16th YRA

To the Denizenry of Her Majesty's Castle Marrach;

In accordance to the will of the Lord Chamberlain, and in upholding the duties charged to me as Senior Chronicler, I hereby submit the chronicle An Introduction To Painting

On the evening of the 12th day of the 8th moon during this, the 16th year of these recent awakenings, the Unity of the Arts held a class on introductory painting in the Outer Bailey Theater.

Unity Mummer sera Klara led the class, presenting each student with a different flower to draw. Sketching and drawing, she explained, was the first step towards creating a painting and would be the focus of this class.

As the students drew, she gave directions on the various stages of composition: what the first lines should accomplish, how to look for details in the subject matter, and how one improves over time.

"Drawing isn't meant to be perfect on the first time out," she elaborated when discussing the first results. "My own talent improves with each painting I do."

At the conclusion of the class, sera Klara bid the students return for the next session.

This chronicle will be subject to changes and corrections, as I humbly ask that the readers indicate to me through their discretion any falsehood I may have mistakenly communicated. It is through the preservation of the Past that we continue to serve Her Grace and give strength to those that will follow in our wake.

In service to Her Majesty Queen Vivienne, the Lady Chamberlain, the Chronicler's Office, and the Denizenry of our Gracious Queen's Realm;

Chronicle LXIX

Senior Chronicler
