Free-to-View WTAERCOLOUR PAINTING Tutorials by Paul Taggart

Watercolour is a fresh and exciting medium, whose beauty is reliant on its natural transparency. Watercolour paints offer limitless possibilities when all of the attributes and characteristics of this hugely popular medium are fully exploited. Not surprising, when you consider that most people start with simple pencil sketches, which are then overlaid with colour washes.

THE PRINCIPLES OF WATERCOLOUR PAINTING can take you on a journey from the simplest of Line & Wash coloured sketches through to the rich, lustrous results of a technique that combines those of Wet on Dry and Wet on Wet. This versatility makes it attractive not only to the complete beginner, but also to the professional.

Watercolour painting is unlike any other medium, in that it affords the painter a brilliance and transparency of colour. Contrary to popular belief, painters are not restricted to producing delicate paintings. The technique of wet-on-wet for example allows for a stronger concentration of pigment, which dries to a clean, rich finish.

The potential to achieve fine detail for delicate work, right through to the bold strokes with which to produce dramatic compositions, means that watercolour painting can be applied to any subject, - from the most delicate study, to a formal portrait.

Through the ever-growing portfolio of WATERCOLOUR PAINTING tutorials, Artist and Author Paul Taggart hopes to encourage you to enjoy your watercolour painting experience and to experiment with different techniques and approaches.

Free-to-View OIL PAINTING Tutorials by Paul Taggart

Oil paint is a rich and robust medium, whose beauty is reliant on its internal glow and tactile nature. By fully exploiting the characteristics of the paint, whether in its raw buttery form, or thinned down to an oily fluid, artists have at their disposal an extensive range of possibilities. Not surprising that oil painting has been the favoured choice for artists over many centuries.

THE PRINCIPLES OF OIL PAINTING can take you on a journey from the simplest of washy oil sketches through to the rich, lustrous results of a traditional technique in which the paint is built up in layers, from dark to light.

The versatility afforded by this medium in enabling the artist to produce spontaneous paintings, all-in-one-go, or to work over a period of time to achieve a more developed piece, makes oil painting attractive to beginners and professionals alike.

Techniques such as tinting and glazing with transparent mixes of glowing colour, provide the very essence of brilliance and depth associated with paintings in oil; whether they be most highly detailed, or dramatically bold. From the smallest of miniatures painted on gesso, to the larger than life masterpieces on canvas, oil painting is in a world of its own.

Through the ever-growing portfolio of OIL PAINTING tutorials, Artist and Author Paul Taggart hopes to encourage you to enjoy your oil painting experience and to experiment with different techniques and approaches.

THE PRINCIPLES OF ACRYLIC PAINTING can take you on a journey from the simplest of coloured daubs, through to highly detailed, photorealistic renditions. This range of capabilities makes it attractive not only to the would-be adult painter, but also to the professional artist.

Acrylic painting is a modern medium and one that is unique; it is quite unlike any of the other media, such as watercolours, oils and pastels.

Free-to-View PASTEL PAINTING Tutorials by Paul Taggart

Pastel is a pure and radiant medium, whose beauty is reliant on its intense pigmentation. When fully harnessed, the unique characteristics of pastels will furnish any artist with an array of techniques that far outstrip the common view of this medium. Not surprising that pastel painting takes so many by surprise when they discover its full potential.


THE PRINCIPLES OF PASTEL PAINTING can take you on a journey from the simplest of chalky sketches through to a masterpiece that has been painstakingly built up in layers of graduated colours, working from intense darks to dazzling lights.

To work with pastels is to work with a medium that is unique, in that it can be exploited not only in its dry state, but can also be manipulated in wet form. Moreover, the range of techniques and possibilities can be extended even further, through bringing other media, such as watercolours, into play.

Contrary to popular belief, sticks of pastels are not unwieldy and are perfectly capable of yielding the finest of strokes and tiniest of accents. As such, this medium is equally capable of rendering dainty subjects, as it is bold, dramatic paintings.

Free-to-View MASTERCLASS with Paul Taggart Play

Masterclass with Paul Taggart is an occasional series through which you can follow Artist and Author Paul Taggart as he works on one of his principal selling paintings - completed over many weeks, sometimes months, of intensive work.

"Painting is my passion and sharing that passion gives me enormous pleasure. Although I work in all media, most particularly in my tutorials; nowadays the work produced for Private Collectors is primarily in oils, with watercolours, acrylics and pastels being used when specifically commissioned.

Viewers of my tutorials will know that traditional techniques form the cornerstone of my work -- which requires time and deliberation. This considered approach means that oil paintings take many weeks, if not months and in some cases, years to produce.

Viewers of my work are fascinated to understand the process that I work through to arrive at the finished painting and for this reason we started to produce filmed reveals of some of my paintings, such as 'Lone Piper', 'Bonspiel' with accompanying narrative -- this collection of films will also build.

Followers of my tutorials are equally fascinated to get to grips with the traditional techniques, to have a greater understanding of them and so it is we will film a selected number of Masterclasses, focussing on one particular painting at a time.

However, to film each and every stroke as I paint would involve a monumental amount of filming and viewing time -- which is why the filming will focus on one particular section (perhaps one other), so that you can watch that develop from start to finish.

We do hope you enjoy these films and pick up additional hints and tips from my method of working".
