Making LIGHT Work for You

Making LIGHT Work for You
Thankyou and Latest box-set release from Paul Taggart's Highland studio.

Greetings from our Highland studio, where we are finalising plans for filming tutorials over the coming months, working through the many strands of Elphen Chronicles and plotting out my Fine Art work – plenty of news on those fronts to come. Time seems to fly past at an alarming rate and our to-do lists just seem to grow and grow – not that we’re grumbling, far from it, for we feel very fortunate to be creatively engaged on so many levels and to also be working with some exceedingly talented fellow creatives.
            Before going any further with our news below, Eileen and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who responds to our newsletters, we really do appreciate these loveliest and kindest of emails and the continued support of our work and make every effort to send a thank-you email in return. It is astonishing to know that some followers have been with us since the first of my sixteen painting books came out in 1992, others have been with us since we launched the first manifestation of our website over twenty years ago, others have discovered our work since we took our first tentative steps on YouTube, nearly ten years ago – however you came to support our work, we salute you one-and-all, for sticking with us and hope that we can continue to share my passion for painting with you.   
  • Complete and detailed start-to-finish tutorial, taking you step-by-step through this painting.
  • Eighteen one-hour videos make up this box-set, total running time 18 hours 35mins
  • AVAILABLE TO BUY as a COMPLETE BOX-SET (Stream/Download) or as INDIVIDUAL EPISODES or ........ TO RENT as  COMPLETE BOX-SET (30 days) or as INDIVIDUAL EPISODES (24 hours)
  • The purpose of Series 5 is to show you how to look for light in your subject and how to maximise it in your painting; not only through a deeper understanding of the power that coloured greys can bring to your colour mixing palette, but also through the exploitation of the twin traditional oil painting techniques of glazing and tinting.
Work-along with me on this view and you will come to appreciate the quality of light in your subject, whatever the conditions of the day. Even an overcast landscape, on a seemingly dull day, is imbued with light in one form or another. The overall effect may be subtler, but look closely and you will discover myriad colours in the simplest of elements. 
As with all our tutorials, everything is filmed in real-time, there is no speed painting here … no editing out … even problems and mistakes are shown, so that you will learn how to overcome them. Work-along with me and follow Eileen’s close-up filming to discover the joy of working with oil paints using traditional techniques, whilst I describe in detail the process and share a host of tips and hints through my running commentary.

The painting produced for this box-set was inspired by one of my Masterworks oil paintings ‘Wistful Reflections’ – which you can see in this FREE-TO-VIEW video Reveal –

We look forward to your company and as always, send you best wishes for your painting, from Eileen and myself.
