David Bellamy's Coastal LandscapesBook - 2002
Artist David Bellamy shows painters how to capture the dramatic beauty and atmosphere of coastal and marine landscapes using watercolor, pastels, and oil. The sea and coastline hold a tremendous attraction for painters, yet trying to capture crashing waves and rocky seascapes, for example, presents a hurdle for many artists. Although Coastal Landscapes is aimed at those who already have some experience in painting, much of the book will also be of interest and value to beginners. This well-structured course covers all the practical aspects of watercolor, pastel, and oil painting, as well as composition, painting on site, and evoking atmosphere and light. Throughout, there are numerous practical exercises, not only highlighting key points but also enabling students to monitor their progress. Featuring 150 color illustrations, this is an outstanding guide to painting coastal scenery.
