    Welcome to ‘Out and About with Paul’ where you join Artist and Author Paul Taggart in this ‘live’ workshop, that was originally held to raise funds for the Invergordon Lifeboat Station 40th Anniversary in 2014. As requests from the organisers were for acrylics and, or, soft pastels, we decided to combine the two into a mixed media workshop, as this gave Paul the opportunity to demonstrate the two-fold effectiveness of an acrylic underpainting in providing not only dark complementary accents, but also a tooth on which to build layers of soft pastels. Filmed in real-time, just as if you had attended the live workshop, you can watch along and use these films as a tutorial, from Paul’s initial thumbnails, through the drawing out of the composition in brush pen, to the acrylic underpainting. You can therefore follow his every move and listen to Paul’s detailed explanation of the reasons for those actions, with close-up filming frequently used to show you every stroke, every blend and every surface colour mix, accompanied by his running commentary throughout, for he does not believe in holding anything back. There are three parts to this mixed-media on-the-spot tutorial, in which you will see the technique of working from dark to light as adapted from the traditional layering techniques that Paul employs in his own Masterworks for pastels, oils and acrylics. Breaks in the filming follow the breaks naturally experienced by those attending, who were able then to work up to that point, before Paul’s demonstration resumed. You however, are in a position to refer back to these films whenever you want, so that you can practice try out the techniques time and again. Directional strokes, varying pressure and the use of different parts of the pastel are exploited, just as you would with brush-strokes, to ‘describe’ the lay of the land and the water, as well as the various textural qualities present in these elements. You are shown how to bring elements into focus by suggesting their detail, rather than laboriously picking out each and every facet; you are shown how light and shade play their part in creating volume and form; not to mention how manipulating the textural opportunity provided by pastels comes into its own, as does the use of paper wipers/blenders to create softness and the subtlest of colour mixing on the surface. A fourth, short Painting Topical Technique introduces you to a simple study in which the underpainting features texture paste to provide an alternative option on which you can work with soft pastels. We believe in value-for-money and this three-part tutorial is available to rent or buy at a fraction of the cost that you would pay for a similar overall length DVD. Although demonstrated in soft pastels – this dark-to-light layering process can also be reverted back for use with oils and/or acrylics.

Here however, Paul Taggart demonstrates the simplest of approaches to maximising the potential of soft pastels in a painterly manner, working in layers from dark to light. Work along with Paul and use this exercise to learn how to create your own unique underpainting to not only obtain a dark underlying ‘accent’ colour, but also to create a textured surface, whilst at the same time enhancing the ‘tooth’ required for a successful soft pastel painting. Using different values of one single colour, will teach you how to gradually work in layers, and to work through from dark to light. Judicious blending also comes into play, as does directional pastel strokes; to achieve volume and form. 'Painting Topical Techniques with Paul Taggart’ is a dedicated series that not only stands alone, but will also help you with the various Learn To Enjoy Painting with Paul Taggart episodes and so on. Each episode concentrates on a particular aspect within a medium - in which Artist and Author Paul Taggart carries out a detailed demonstration, whilst also providing a running commentary. "I believe that anyone can learn to paint or draw providing they are given as much guidance as possible and shown the techniques with which to develop. My tuition is based on sharing knowledge and passing on techniques without which I would never have been able to develop as a Professional Artist and Author." Let this Artist and Author of fourteen books and Presenter of a growing index of over three hundred tutorial videos show you how to expand your horizons.

        See also ‘Learn to Enjoy Painting in Pastels’ with Paul Taggart – CLICK HERE – https://vimeo.com/ondemand/artworkshopwithpaulpast1 Although demonstrated as a mixed-media painting in Acrylics with Soft Pastels; the principles of this traditional layering technique of working from dark-to-light are equally suitable for painting with oil paints and/or for painting with acrylics as stand-alone media. Similarly, the underpainting layer can be executed in watercolours. You join Paul Taggart in this ‘live’ workshop as he explains that although there are aspects of the sky that he might like to work on; to do so at this stage would be to imbalance the composition. Working in layers, from the top of the painting down to the foreground and doing so gradually is essential in concluding with a well-balanced painting. So, Paul now moves on to the main body of water in the harbour; which firstly requires a graded approach, working from a dark warm blue in the foreground, diminishing through progressively cooler light blues and ultimately on to white as the viewer’s eye is drawn into the far distance. Having established the base of this water, he switches to the shore and works in exactly in the same manner, gradually working from dark colours at the water’s edge, through to the lightest values in the foreground. Directional strokes, varying pressure and the use of different parts of the pastel are exploited, just as you would with brush-strokes, to ‘describe’ the lay of the land and the water, as well as the various textural qualities present in these elements. Having blended this first layer of pastel, Paul now goes back into these sections to work on the next layer of pastel; again working from the back of the painting to the front so that elements are progressively laid over each other as he moves forward. In this way, the overall composition is brought into focus in a balanced way; allowing you the artist to select those elements which you wish the viewer’s eye to become fixed on - in other words, the focus of your composition. You are shown how to bring elements into focus by suggesting their detail, rather than laboriously picking out each and every facet; you are shown how light and shade play their part in creating volume and form; not to mention how manipulating the textural opportunity provided by pastels comes into its own, as does the use of paper wipers/blenders to create softness and the subtlest of colour mixing on the surface. FINALLY REFLECTIONS – how they work and how they are achieved – A MUST FOR ANY ARTIST Following a tutorial such as this is not about slavishly copying what Paul Taggart has produced, it is about learning and practising the technique, with which you can develop your own unique style. What Paul decides to do, therefore, is not necessarily what you would want to do – you may prefer to focus on something entirely different. As with all of Paul Taggart’s tutorials THIS EPISODE ALONE IS PACKED FULL of hints, tips and techniques – AS WELL AS SHOWING HOW corrections can be made, HOW surface mixing comes into play, HOW underpainting influences subsequently applied layers of colour and so much more. THE DAY WAS CENTRED ON PAUL’S START-TO FINISH PAINTING DEMONSTRATION, BROKEN INTO STAGES TO ALLOW THE GROUP TO WORK ALONG AT THEIR OWN EASELS AND BE VISITED BY PAUL FOR ONE-TO-ONE HINTS AND TIPS. THIS THREE-PART SET OF FILMS FOLLOWS THOSE BREAKS SUBJECT – the beautiful fishing village of Portmahomack is situated on the east coast of the Northern Highlands of Scotland and Paul explains why he selected the particular view looking along the sweep of the harbour beach. THE PURPOSE OF THE MIXED MEDIA WORKSHOP WAS TO RAISE FUNDS IN AID OF THE RNLI Invergordon Lifeboat Station’s 40th Anniversary Year Celebrations (2014). When Moira Aitken approached us for a one-day workshop for her artistic friends that meet in the Carnegie Hall (in Portmahomack) on a regular basis, we rather boldly asked if the invitation to attend this workshop could be extended to include others that might be interested and her group very kindly agreed to our request. Moira priced the fee at a generously low £20 for the entire day and we provided Paul’s services free-of-charge, in order that all proceeds from the workshop could be donated to Invergordon Lifeboat Station. THE FINISHED ORIGINAL PAINTING WAS DONATED BY PAUL TAGGART for the purpose of raising funds equally between RNLI Invergordon Lifeboat Station and The Carnegie Hall in Portmahomack.

PART 2 - Having worked along with Paul up to the drawing out stage (as demonstrated in Part 1), those attending this live workshop settled back down again to watch Paul at his demonstration easel, where he took up his acrylic paints and brushes to render the underpainting. HOWEVER, before doing so, Paul explained the colour circle basics for his intended complementary colour underpainting, along with his intention of rendering cool colours over warm plus warm colours over cool. All of which is captured in this episode. SO SETTLE BACK AND FOLLOW PAUL AS HE NOW CONTINUES WITH THE UNDERPAINTING. AS WITH ALL OF PAUL’S DEMONSTRATIONS, THIS EPISODE IS PACKED FULL OF INVALUABLE HINTS, TIPS and TECHNIQUES – such as the IMPACT OF COMPLEMENTARY COLOUR UNDERPAINTING. Upon completion of the underpainting, Paul takes a break to allow the group to attend to their own artworks – returning to Paul’s easel a little while later where Paul SWITCHES TO ARTISTS’ QUALITY SOFT PASTELS and starts work on the first section of the pastel painting. Having joined Paul in making their own paper wipers, the group are now introduced to some basics on surface mixing with pastels, before Paul returns to the painting. Working from the top of the painting – in other words from the back of the composition to the front – Paul turns his attention to the sky and distant hills, building up the layers gradually, working through to the lights and highlights. Paul shows how varying the direction of pastel strokes emulates directional brush-strokes; how blending not only helps to establish soft areas that act as a foil to harder strokes, providing focus and form, but is used to model the distant hills.

Many are daunted by the prospect of painting in situ - here Paul hopes to allay those fears. Many are daunted by the idea of working in oils – which is why, in this episode, the author of fourteen how-to books determined to capture a landscape in a more unstructured composition - which he terms an oil painting sketch. But don’t let that simple term fool you, for although this is a simple painting to achieve it is based on the traditional techniques that Paul uses on his own Masterworks – which is well worth watching as a full-blown tutorial. YOU WILL LEARN MUCH about how to suggest elements within a seemingly busy composition; how to concentrate on shapes, light and shade with which to construct those elements; how to prevent yourself from becoming bogged down with detail. But as with all of Paul Taggart’s tutorials, this is not merely a step-by-step guide, it is a tutorial packed full of handy hints, tips and techniques which have been developed by this professional artist of over forty years standing. Paul is passionate about his art and is equally enthusiastic about sharing that passion with others; whether with those who paint themselves, or aspire to, or those who simply wish to understand more about what goes into a painting.

IN PART 2 – Paul turns his attention to the tidal waters of the sea that flow into the bay of this West coast harbour in Scotland - in this painting produced in the simplest of layering techniques, working wet-into-wet in order to complete the painting in its entirety whilst in Oban. Having completed the sky and distant hills in Part 1, along with the tree-cloaked promontory and architectural features of buildings, pier and boats, Paul Taggart now moves onto the sunlit water, weeds and foreshore. Follow along with Paul as he shows how to bring the ebbing waters of the sea to life, how to create form on the wavelets, through the use of warm colour mixes to pick out the sunlit tops and cool mixes to render their shadowed underbelly. You will learn how to differentiate between weeds drying out on the surface of the water and those sodden masses that float underneath in tangled strands. Sadly, due to overstraining of the camera batteries on this searingly hot day we were not able to complete this painting on the same day – so the first segment of this film draws to a close with the intention of returning two days later to complete it in situ. But between now and then we were to be guests of the Oban Lifeboat Station at their Open Day where Paul would be pitching his easel to complete an on-the-spot watercolour montage and Eileen would be filming sections to offer here as a work-along exercise. PICK UP AGAIN IN THE SECOND SEGMENT and follow along as Paul continues through to the conclusion of this step-by-step oil painting tutorial after an enforced halt to the painting a couple of days earlier. Although the light conditions were quite different, Paul had enough memory of the afternoon sunlight and shadows from the earlier stages. Paul first directs his attention to those aspects with which is unhappy – showing how you can correct aspects, with particular techniques, in this case he uses ‘negative painting’ to great effect. As you will see some of the elements had changed and one in particular proved more attractive to the overall composition – allowing Paul to demonstrate how to alter things that require amending. Then Paul turns his attention to the dark accents, present in the pier, buildings and boats. Follow along as he now works right across the entire composition – working through from the previously laid mid-values to the bright lights and super-highlights. ‘AWASH WITH THE RNLI – PAUL TAGGART’S FUND-RAISING PROJECT’ – OBAN LIFEBOAT STATION Join Paul Taggart as he lands in Oban for his reference gathering trip and to celebrate the 40th Anniversary Open Day of the Oban Lifeboat Station on the West Coast of Scotland.

The subject for each of these paintings being chosen for its history and iconic representation of an area closely associated with selected RNLI Lifeboat Stations around the shores of Scotland. Although a relative youngster in terms of having been founded a mere 40 years ago; Oban Lifeboat Station is now the busiest of the Scottish lifeboat stations. Not to mention the fact that is one of the busiest All-Weather Lifeboats in the UK. The crew of the RNLB Mora Edith MacDonald are all volunteers, excepting the Coxswain and cover an astonishing area of some 471 miles of coastline, which includes some of the fiercest and most notorious tidal waters in the UK.

IN PART 1 – you will see Paul draw out the principal elements of the composition, using the view in front of him in conjunction with a thumbnail to guide him. From there Paul moves on to blocking in with washy mixes the main components, then moves back to establishing the elements once more as he draws them in, corrects and changes as he works towards a balanced composition. Then he starts the main impasto work – firstly working on the SKY – in which you will learn about graded washes and how to achieve those wispy clouds through blending. Finishing off the first segment of Part 1, Paul turns to the far distant hills and mountains – working on aerial perspective, scuffs and scumbles to denote sunlight glancing off their rugged surfaces. Paul moves forward in this painting produced in the simplest of layering techniques, working wet-into-wet in order to complete the painting in its entirety whilst in Oban. Having completed the sky and distant hills, he now moves onto the right hand promontory cloaked with trees; before moving on to the busiest section of the composition. The pier, buildings and boats are not painted in detail; instead they are brought to life through suggested forms. Paul establishes their shapes and their placement in the whole painting. Maximising the use of form and structure, light and shade, soft focus and techniques to draw the eye, Paul shows how to exploit a variety of tools available to artists to accomplish this. Part 1 draws to a close in anticipation of what is to come – the water, weeds and closest foreshore. ‘AWASH WITH THE RNLI – PAUL TAGGART’S FUND-RAISING PROJECT’ – OBAN LIFEBOAT STATION Join Paul Taggart as he lands in Oban for his reference gathering trip and to celebrate the 40th Anniversary Open Day of the Oban Lifeboat Station on the West Coast of Scotland.
