CHAPTER VI

He drew the outline of the castle and the near bank of the river, slanting across his paper. In the left foreground was the big mass of Brocas Clump. It was one of those natural compositions, which give a false impression of facility. He threw down his pencil and held out the drawing. Not too bad. He had been careful to avoid too much detail. He sat back and screwed up his eyes and looked over at the castle. The Union Jack floated from a standard ; when the King was at Windsor, the Royal Ensign was flown. It was quiet by the river. Pleasure steamers were not yet running. A man was fishing a few yards away. He pulled up his rod, inspected the bait and dropped it into the water again. Denis put his hands into his pockets and looked round. He was going to be happy this half.
" How are you getting on ?" said Llewellyn. He dropped his bicycle on the ground and leaned over Denis's shoulder. The pedals of the bicycle went on spinning. Llewellyn cocked his head on one side and took a piece of charcoal from his waistcoat pocket.
" You've got the Round Tower too high. Yes. Ye-es." He measured a distance on the charcoal with his thumb and forefinger and applied it to the drawing. " Near enough. Those trees want drawing more carefully. Are you going to start painting this morning ? "

He watched the paper dry in the sun and packed up his things. He threw the dirty paint water in the river and went over to the fisherman. " Caught anything? " " Not yet," said the fisherman. Across the river a siren hooted in the lower part of Windsor. Dinner time for everyone.
" That's coming all right, Bailey," said Llewellyn, in the studio. A group of boys still surrounded him. Some had been
