CHAPTER VI

life as the boys' own drawings. Once he had a fit and dashed screaming from the dais and hit out right and left in the studio. He used such shocking language that the boys could do nothing but laugh. After a little he returned to his dais and sat bolt upright and glared before him for the rest of the morning.
" What are you going to do, Bailey ?" said Llewellyn. Denis took up a campstool. " What about the castle from Brocas Clump, sir ? "
" Nothing like an old favourite. Yes, do it before the elms get too heavy. I'll come round later."
Denis got his things and went out by himself. He was glad no one else was doing the same view. He liked to be alone with the river. That was the best of Eton ; at other schools, he supposed, boys were seldom left alone. He unpacked his things on the river bank and started to draw.
He had done the castle from the Brocas before ; several times. He had done most of the Eton views, which had roughly the same ingredients. There was the peaceful Thames with the photographic pile of Windsor Castle mirrored in the water. There was the deep red brick of Upper School and the block of buildings surrounding the Cloisters, the cold grey buttresses of chapel, brilliant green playing fields, which he painted yellow, as summer and cricket progressed ; and there were elms. Fat trunks of elms, which branched up into kite-shaped masses like the delta of the rive r Nile ; and at their base, feathery bushes, sprouting with green. Elms, he had learnt by now, should be painted grey yellow with warm, blueish shadows put on with a wet brush.
But the castle remained a problem. He was always painting it, but it was never a success. It looked so new and smart and near, though much of it had been built by Edward the Third and it was nearly a mile from the centre of Eton. Denis would never admit that the castle came out better in picture post-cards than in paint, and he was too honest to follow Turner's example and disregard utterly its structural limitations.
