Followers of artworkshopwithpaul and our online video art tutorials on Vimeo, Patreon, Facebook and Instagram, receive regular updates of our latest postings and shares. To receive a personal newsletter from our studio, please register on our site.

Greetings from our home to yours and as ever this comes with the hope that all is well at your end, both in spirit and in health.
    As long as we continue to share a mutual passion for creativity, we have something in our lives that cannot be taken away from us. It may be that circumstances can sometimes interfere with the intention to create, but don’t you find that as long as we have the ability to enjoy creativity as either a participant or as an appreciative viewer/listener, then our lives are enriched?
 
Over our artistic decades, we have been privileged to enjoy the company and output of fellow creators, sometimes chronicling their work, other times working collaboratively on projects; not only in the world of art, but also in the realms of theatre, music and design. So it is with Composer, Musician, Producer and Author Liza Mulholland, who generously allowed us to use her beautifully evocative composition ‘Balachan Ban’ (wee fair boy) to accompany this free-to-view Masterworks Reveal of Paul’s oil painting ‘Winter Moon’ – simply click here or on the following link to enjoy her solo piano playing on this track from her album ‘Fine’n’Rosy’, chosen by Liza especially for our film – recently released on our Patreon account, you will be carried away by the lyrical nature of the music  - https://www.patreon.com/posts/52341203

 

Patreon was started by an independent musician who wanted to share his passion for music and the platform has now grown in size and stature, home to a wealth of varied creative talents. Some are showcasing their work, supported by ‘patrons’; others, are using the platform to offer video tutorials and so on. As you can read in our May newsletter, we have joined their ranks to offer our tutorials on a subscription basis, keeping the monthly fee to a reasonable level. Mind-you, there are no locked-in-contracts with Patreon, so anyone can sign-up for a month, then cancel and come back at a later stage to catch-up with the latest releases and there is no initial joining fee to open an account on Patreon.
 

 

On Vimeo our VOD box-sets can be selected by medium; whilst in Patreon, our Modules 1 & 2 give access to all video tutorials within a Series or as defined in the Module descriptions.   
 


We have also uploaded quite a number of free-to-view ‘ArtBytes from Paul’ videos, so there are plenty of Try-Before-You-Buy hints and tips with which to become familiar with Paul’s method of tutoring.

There are free-to-view, behind-the-scenes reveals, plenty of videos showcasing the traditional painting techniques that Paul uses for his Fine Art; methods that are exploited and shared in our video art tutorials.
 
We have also added some initial benefits to joining us on Patreon, starting off with 15% discounts on the purchase price of selected box-sets from Vimeo. For anyone joining us in Module 1 there is a 15% discount code to redeem against any of the listed box-sets (top row in this image) and for anyone signing-up for Module 2, there is a 15% discount on all those box-sets shown in the following image.The process of redeeming those codes is simple and automatic as directed in the Module descriptions.
