Renowned watercolorist David Bellamy shows how to paint essential elements of landscapes—skies, light, and atmosphere—in this painting resource, demonstrating how choices involving these three key elements can affect a painting. Starting with skies, the basic techniques are covered, including composition, clouds, special effects such as silver linings, sunsets, and shafts of light, followed by a dramatic sky demonstration. The next element is light, with plenty of advice about warm and cool light, using glazes, how to cast shadows, rendering light from different directions, and painting the sun and reflected light, followed by a step-by-step demonstration featuring strong light and shadow. The atmosphere section covers the elements of haze and mist, fog, mountains in cloud, smoke and steam, rain, storms, and tranquil moods, and is followed by an atmospheric painting of a waterfall that details each stage of the process. Sure to inspire, plenty of David’s own watercolor paintings of skies, light, and atmosphere appear throughout the book.
