The gentle, up-and-down motion of the brush lulled him, left him thoughtless for hours whilst he gazed on the oily streaks of paint.
Тихонько водя кистью взад и вперед, он целыми часами бездумно отдавался легкому убаюкивающему раскачиванию и только следил за густыми желтыми мазками.

They were not near the Gulf now, and the air was dry and hot so that the brush cricked with heat and a good resinous smell came from it.

Since the light brush, that second night on the upper landing, of the presence of a woman at the foot of the stair, I had seen nothing, whether in or out of the house, that one had better not have seen.
После короткого столкновения с призраком женщины у подножия лестницы я не видела больше ничего, ни в доме, ни вне дома, ничего такого, чего лучше было бы вовсе не видеть.
