"There's an excellent variety of material here, from mountains to landscapes and settings both in the UK and abroad, which makes for a good choice of approaches." —www.ArtBookReview.net
"David turns his attention to capturing what he regards as the three main ingredients of a successful painting: skies, light and atmosphere, explaining how even the most mundane of subjects can be transformed by the right lighting and mood." —Leisure Painter (July 2012)
This latest guide by celebrated British watercolorist Bellamy (David Bellamy's Complete Guide to Watercolour Painting) focuses on the most elusive elements of landscape painting. Each of the book's three sections provides many examples of how light, sky, or atmosphere may be rendered in watercolors, and ends with a complete landscape step-by-step project. The book is aimed at both beginning and intermediate painters. Bellamy suggests that the effects learned here can help more experienced painters refresh an otherwise tired location. VERDICT Traditional landscape watercolorists will appreciate the tips and techniques presented here.
