David Bellamy has a tremendous following among amateur painters and in this book he shows the reader how to paint his favourite subject - wild landscapes. David Bellamy's previous books have sold extremely well; Watercolour Landscape Course (60,000 copies sold), Developing Your Watercolours (31,000) and Learn to Paint Landscapes in Watercolour (40,000). This new book is both a practical and an inspirational guide to painting mountains, deserts and wilderness. It contains many tips and techniques for artists of all levels, both for the practicalities of painting in the wild but also for all those armchair artists who want to paint wilder landscapes but don't want to trek into the wilds to do it. Having travelled extensively in India, the Himalayas, the Middle East, Africa, the US and Europe, David Bellamy has painted in many remote and beautiful places. In this book he shares some of those extraordinary painting experiences with the reader and also shows them in step-by-step directions how to achieve similar paintings themselves.
