Overview

David Bellamy's Winter Landscapes: in Watercolour by David Bellamy

This is David Bellamys favourite time for being out sketching, often in watercolour. In this book he explains the challenges and joys of capturing winter subjects, from how to achieve rapid pencil sketches in less than perfect conditions to painting in watercolour on the spot. Snow completely changes the landscape, simplifying it for the artist, creating marvellous opportunities for reflected light and subtle use of exciting colours. The book begins with the stunning warm colours of late autumn, then moves into the second section covering winter scenes without snow. The following deep mid-winter section shows you how to tackle snow scenes with various types of snow conditions, before we move on to the final section covering early spring.

Also covered is gearing up for working outdoors in winter, techniques for rendering hoar frost on trees, misty and atmospheric effects, injecting rogue colours to add excitement to your work, how to tackle a variety of tree branches for different species, depicting light branches against dark backgrounds, altering the composition to suit your needs, and so much more. For those who really dont wish to venture out, even on the mildest of winter days, there is a whole host of examples of winter landscapes to help you tackle this fascinating time of year.

A DVD entitled Winter Landscapes in Watercolour has been produced as a companion to this book, and is available from David's website www.davidbellamy.co.uk or from APV Fiilms at www.apvfilms.com
