Paint landscapes for the chance to win a set of David Bellamy books


Artist and explorer, David Bellamy is well known for his spectacular landscapes, seascapes and mountain scenery.

To celebrate David’s 40th anniversary of writing for Leisure Painter, you are invited to paint your own landscape with an added atmospheric element.

You may want to infuse your painting with the effects of brilliant sunshine and deep shadows or depict rain, mist or snow.

Do you work in collage or enjoy adding found objects to your paintings?

From crashing waves to dramatic high mountain peaks, we would like to see images of recent and original artwork in any medium, inspired by the countryside that surrounds you, or painted from your own or copyright-free photographs, or from your imagination.

Each of three winners will receive five Search Press books by David Bellamy, worth over £69, including David Bellamy’s Skies, Light & Atmosphere in Watercolour and Arctic Light.

Enter your atmospheric landscapes for the chance to win a set of books from Search Press.

We have created a step-by-step guide on how to enter our image-based competitions which can be found by clicking here, should you need it.
