David Bellamy - Watercolour Artist

One of the UK’s top british watercolour artists David Bellamy specialises in painting wild mountain and coastal scenes, and is particularly fascinated by the moods of nature in the wild places. His paintings have reached private collections in many parts of the world. A full-time artist and author, he has written eleven books (see below) illustrated with his paintings.

Six instructional videos on watercolour painting by David have been produced by APV Films of Chipping Norton. He has also produced two video diaries and two slide presentations on DVD. He runs watercolour painting courses in the UK and overseas and demonstrates to art societies, you can find out more at David Bellamy‘s website www.davidbellamy.co.uk where you can see more  David Bellamy Paintings, and further examples of his work as a professional watercolour artist, together with hints and tips for improving your watercolour paintings can be found on his blog here davidbellamyart.blogspot.co.uk

Raising awareness of threats to the environment

Through his painting and writing he hopes to bring about a greater awareness of the threats to the natural environment, and he is particularly active in conserving the wild areas. He is a patron of the Marine Conservation Society’s Seas for Life Appeal.

David Bellamy watercolour demonstrations

David offers a two-hour watercolour demonstration and will travel to any part of the UK providing he can combine the trip with some other business. He never demonstrates the same subject twice and can tailor the presentation to suit the Art Societies requirements.

The “King” of understatement

I totally admire David’s ability to create amazing landscapes with the minimum number of brushstrokes and colours, and his use of negative painting and “lost and found” techniques creates breathtaking results which one day I hope to be able achieve myself. I once saw David demonstrate painting a waterfall in the wilds at a Patchings Art Festival a number of years back, and if you haven’t seen him deliver his watercolour painting demonstration then I encourage you to do so, I can guarantee you will not be disappointed and will learn so much.
