In 'Wilderness Artist 'David Bellamy recalls many of his most exciting adventures in search of sublime scenery to capture in his sketches and watercolour paintings. The book offers a fascinating combination of adventure anecdotes and practical painting tips, and will appeal to all those who are drawn to wild and dramatic landscapes – coasts and cliffs, gorges, deserts, mountains, caves and fast-flowing rivers.
The exhilaration of exploring and working in such places is graphically portrayed by David Bellamy and the text is enhanced by his atmospheric watercolours and on-the-spot sketches – at times carried out in appalling and dangerous conditions. He emphasises the value of working direct from nature whenever possible, and explains how he tackled particular painting problems in a variety of challenging locations in Britain, Ireland, Europe, Africa and the USA. A number of double-page features are also included throughout to show how a specific painting was developed first from sketch to finished watercolour.
Whether you are a fellow artist, a walker, an adventurer or someone who simply enjoys the beauty of nature, the vivid descriptions and evocative paintings in 'Wilderness Artist ' are sure to capture your imagination – and inspire you to extend your own horizons in search of new and exciting subjects or experiences.About the Author:
