SNOWDONIA came alive before the eyes of members of Redditch Arts Circle at the April meeting.

It was all the work of artist David Bellamy who was giving a presentation on ‘Atmospheric Watercolours’.

After referring to his sketchbook and doing a rough drawing, David set to work by wetting his paper and washing in the sky.

When this had dried he painted in the mountain ranges, reducing the tone of the wash on the distant ranges to give the effect of recession.

The mainly green and yellow areas of the foreground and middle distance were washed in and allowed to dry before he got to work on some of the finer, detailed points to create a cottage, stone walls, shrubs and trees.

Throughout David had gave a commentary on his materials and technique as well as answering questions on the go.

The Circle’s next meeting will be at St. Luke’s Memorial Hall, Evesham Road, Headless Cross on Wednesday, May 1 at 7.30pm when Hunt Emerson, cartoonist for The Beano, will give his presentation.
