by Harriet Keith Fobes

THE DELINEATOR Magazine, August 1895 issue, pp. 201–203.
Butterick Publishing Co., London & New York.

In this sixth of eleven monthly articles on burnt work, American artist Harriet Keith Fobes introduces us to marine and landscape work. She offers advice and instruction on transferring designs from nature, working outdoors, how to do water reflections, how to substitute the burning needle for etching and pencil sketching, and the importance of perspective in doing seascapes and landscapes.

In this sixth article, she introduces the student to many varieties of work and, as usual, with emphasis on working with leather rather than wood.

For more antique articles by various authors, see the E-Museum's Library Exhibit.

If you have either any questions to ask or any information to offer regarding works or articles by Harriet Keith Fobes, please e-mail the E-Museum Curator.
