"Welcome to my studio in the Highlands of Scotland and Series 2, Learn to Enjoy Colour Mixing with Paul Taggart, in which we’re making WHITES work for you.

Having broken down the Basics of Colour Mixing, into a comprehensive collection of easy-to-follow tutorials in Series 1, which cover the nucleus palette of six colours, we now move on to Series 2.

Whilst nearly all the colour mixes you will ever need can be achieved with this palette of six colours, when it comes to working with opaque mediums, such as oil painting and acrylics, you will also need white for your colour mixes.

In this box-set I deal specifically with the two whites that will serve you well for oil painting – starting off, in Part 1, with a detailed introduction to the paints themselves and their specific function.

Identifying whites in your subjects, analysing their nature and their colour make-up is covered in Part 2, as is the method by which to create successful white mixes, for the nature of white varies considerably and understanding this will help you achieve better results in your artworks.

Then I move on to using the two specific whites in a couple of exercises. Firstly, in Parts 3 to 7, the function of Titanium White as a ‘painting white’ is covered in detail in a step-by-step study of a snowscene … as is the process of making white-based colour and subsequent application.

With Zinc White and its invaluable function in the technique of tinting being the basis of the final exercise in Part 8.

Every artist develops their own palette of preferred colours, but to arrive at this selection requires knowledge of not only the available colours, but how colours work with each other to produce successful mixes.

Colour Mixing is every bit as important in making a composition work as thumbnails and perspective. With colour control you can communicate with your viewer, tell a story or evoke a mood - hence the phrase 'to paint a picture'.

You would not be alone in thinking that colour mixing is a daunting prospect; every artist has been through this at some point - even professional artists such as myself. I guarantee however that it needn't be so - for colour mixing is actually about some basic and simple principles.”

As always, this box-set of tutorials comes with best wishes for your painting, from Eileen and myself.
