Overview


Watercolour landscape expert and renowned author, David Bellamy, has a particular liking for winter subjects, since the landscape at this time is not overwhelmed with green. Here he shares his expertise in capturing winter scenes, from how to wrap up and do rapid outdoor sketches to capturing mist, late autumn colours, bare tree trunks and various types of snow, through using rogue colours, making the most of low lighting and introducing early spring elements. There are four sections: late autumn, winter, deep mid-winter and early spring, and four beautiful step-by-step projects.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
01/01/2015
The latest book by landscape painting expert, longtime educator, and veteran author Bellamy (David Bellamy's Complete Guide to Watercolour Painting) takes on portraying winter in the medium of watercolor. The season offers lots of dramatic and expressive possibilities, but light conditions and harsh weather present special challenges to the typical leisure painter, who may be most familiar with the mellow comfort of sunny spring and summer days. A short introductory section of the guide discusses the basics of materials and techniques and offers invaluable tips for working outdoors during the cold season. Bellamy then breaks winter down into chapters on the four subseasons of late autumn, winter, deep midwinter, and early spring. Each shows examples of successful completed works and detail views highlighting specific techniques or subjects followed by a multistep project. VERDICT This guide is ideal for beginning and intermediate hobbyist painters, especially the more intrepid among them who are willing to brave the low temperatures in the course of pursuing their creativity.
