“Welcome to Watch & Wander through Paul Taggart’s Elphen Chronicles and this FREE-TO-VIEW Bonus Feature, in which I invite you behind-the-scenes as I work at my easel on my Story Vignette oil painting – ‘Battling the Sycamosaur’, from Chapter One, of our Video-StoryBook – ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’ - vimeo.com/ondemand/elphenchroniclestwo
Watch how the painting goes through many stages, from the first drawing out - to the final, finishing touches. See how it appears on the pages of my originally written and illustrated book, especially designed by Sunita Gahir for ‘Webstrand the Tooth Gatherer’.
Catch some of the commissioned pieces of original music, uniquely composed by Liza Mulholland; which capture the essence of Fizz’s journey to Webstrand’s homeworld of Cornucapacia on the planet Shimmistra - little tasters from the extensive soundscape that accompanies our Video-StoryBook version of ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’- vimeo.com/ondemand/elphenchroniclestwo

This Story Vignette oil painting is from the collection of over one-hundred Story Vignettes and twenty Masterworks that chronicle the Elphen Folklore of ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’, a collection that took over seven years to complete. For these Story Vignettes I developed a technique specifically for this collection, one that is unique to me. Peek over my shoulder as I reveal the many stages and attention to detail that went into preparing and painting ‘Battling the Sycamosur’, along with my walk-around the painting, in which I introduce you to the composition, the traditional texchniques used and a little insight into what is happening at this point in the story of ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’.
Would you like to know HOW TO PAINT Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer? We’re delighted to have released the first of The Elphen Tutorials box-sets, which is FREE-TO-STREAM - vimeo.com/ondemand/howtopaintwebstrand - in which you can work-along with me on a full length portrait of Webstrand, along with some studies of her wings when opened, her Tooth Gatherer’s Pouch, her elegant hands on which she wears her Elphen Eye-Ring and a little something extra, the Elphen Rememble & Forgettle Dust Shakers, which protect the Elphen secrets.
We’re also delighted to share with you my unique painting technique, through this Box-Set of online video tutorials, in which I take you through the stages from start-to-finish, featuring ‘Battling the Sycamosaur’. This technique is suitable for all subjects, from landscape to still-life paintings, portraits to fantasy and as with all of my painting tutorials, it comprises a detailed demonstration, fully narrated throughout, so that you can work-along with me - vimeo.com/ondemand/oilglazes
In addition to these Story Vignettes, you can watch Bonus Features on some of the twenty scene-setting Masterworks oil paintings that chronicle this meaningful event, one witnessed by Fizz with life-changing consequences - 'Paul Taggart's Elphen Chronicles' Behind-the-Scenes, Bonus Features, Trailers & more
As always, thank you for reading and watching and best wishes from Eileen and myself, not to mention, Sunita and Liza and of course, our Elphen friends, Webstrand and Starfire.”
