In David Bellamy's Landscapes Through the Seasons in Watercolour, David demonstrates not just the broader vistas, but quiet corners and details such as trees, buildings, waterfalls, animals, trees and flowers. You’ll discover how the shapes of natural subjects change with each turn of the season, how colours vary and how light affects both the crispness of outlines and the way aerial perspective is perceived.

Weather is here too, from autumn mists and winter snow to the bright days of summer and sudden spring rain. David provides examples for everything, as well as full demonstrations that show how images develop in their own individual ways.

This is a thorough guide in the company of a popular and experienced teacher who makes working with watercolour a delight.

In Skies, Light & Atmosphere in Watercolour, David returns to one of the subjects for which he's best known and he concentrates on the how rather than just the what and the why of a subject that can be difficult to pin down.

Using plenty of examples, as well as short demonstrations, David explains simple and complex skies, clouds and sunlight. He also shows you how to use layered glazes to increase light effects, how to handle light that comes from more than one direction and how to give real depth to shadows.

In the section on atmosphere, he demonstrates how to make the most of mist and rain, as well as how to create the effect of space and distance.

Although he treats them separately, all of the subjects link together and you'll soon be getting the passion and inspiration that David says are as important as composition for a successful painting. Generously illustrated and superbly reproduced, this is one of David's most instructive books.
