artworkshopwithpaul – our guiding principles – April 2024 blog post #1 of 6

artworkshopwithpaul Tuition and Guidance for the Artist in Everyone with Paul Taggart Artist Author Presenter Producer art tutorials for oils watercolours acrylics pastels drawing colour mixing

“Everyone who knows me, understands that creating artworks is the very essence of my being. It is a passion that I also love to share with others who wish to take up painting, whether it be as a pursuit, or as a profession. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to witness the fulfilling effect that creativity has on someone else’s well-being and self-esteem.


You can imagine therefore, how, over the years, both Eileen and I have felt truly privileged to receive news from folk round the world, telling us how meaningful painting has come to be in troubled times. Which is why we have always said that once you’ve picked up a brush to create your first artwork, painting becomes a companion for life.

From the outset this was our guiding principle. It is how my thirteen instructional books were planned and how we structured our online video tutorials from the very beginning (now numbering well over 700 videos, contained within over 70 box-sets).


We do not simply say “Today we will show you how to paint a flower”, or “Today we will paint a landscape.” For how can someone paint a flower if they do not understand the basics of their painting equipment, or comprehend the myriad techniques and methods that could be exploited, to make their artistic journey as satisfying as it can be?

* Firstly, a well-structured overall plan for the journey in - Oils, Watercolours, Acrylics and Pastels - covering three fundamentals.


[1] Equipment

[2] Method

[3] Techniques.


* Secondly, detailed, step-by-step demonstrations with running commentary, which gently guide the viewer to understanding the equipment, the method and the techniques – withholding nothing, sharing everything (including mistakes and accidents and how to correct them).

Although our mainstream tutorials are dedicated to each of the four principal media – it is worth noting that most of the methods and techniques used in my demonstrations can be exploited to work across other media – for instance, working dark-to-light not only applies to oils, but also to acrylics and pastels and, as such, our tutorials are interchangeable.
