Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
After mastering the basics, intermediate artists often need a kick in the pants to advance to a more sophisticated level. Bellamy's (Coastal Landscapes) new book will do just that for those hoping to create brooding, watery landscapes. Here, the best-selling author emphasizes the importance of direct observation, ways of improving composition, and creative ways of rendering light. Numerous practical exercises are linked to a gallery of paintings at the end of the book. Highly recommended as a follow-up to such basic watercolor books as Jean-Louis Morelle's Watercolor Painting: A Complete Guide to Techniques and Materials. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
