    “Welcome to ‘Watch & Listen to Paul Taggart’s Elphen Chronicles’ – you join me as I read through the nine chapters of my Artist’s First Edition Video-StoryBook : ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’.

    Next time you look up into the royal blue of an evening sky and spy a falling star, think of the Elphen. Somewhere, not so far away, they are gathering their numbers to follow that star until it reaches Earth; where, hidden in the undergrowth they will find their treasure - an Elphen Egg that has traversed the Starfields to reach its destination.

    You may well see them on their journey home, carrying their egg between them. Tiny specks against the night sky; only visible when they cross a bright star, or the face of a full moon.

    Let me share with you the chronicle of an Earthling, who goes by the nickname Fizz; whose creative imagination and zest for life, leads her on a remarkable journey.

    A journey that was to change her life forever, on which, her guide is none other than, Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer.

    If, like Fizz, you also come to believe in Elphen and search carefully along a star’s path, you may find what appears to be a small glowing ember in the undergrowth; but be on your guard, for once you start the search, it can soon become a quest.

    WATCH as I depict the story of 'Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer', through my scene-setting original Masterworks oil paintings and …

    LISTEN as this chronicle of a wondrous journey is told – a journey that begins in Fizz’s creative imaginings.

    WATCH along as I work at my easel, drawing and painting the many story-telling illustrations that capture this epic tale and …

    LISTEN as I read through each of the nine chapters in which Fizz is taken by her new-found Elphen friends on a sometimes exciting, sometimes terrifying, voyage of discovery.

    WATCH as I share with you, the magic of a painting coming to life, through unique reveals of the Webstrand Masterworks, as they unfold from the very first paint strokes to the final highlights and …

    LISTEN to the original Musical Soundtrack and Soundscape that undulates through the good times and bad, the joy and horrors, the magical and real, the very essence of this chronicle of ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’.

  3. Welcome to Paul Taggart’s Elphen Chronicles and this FREE-TO-VIEW Bonus Feature in which we share with you a snapshot of the extraordinary work that has gone into making my soon-to-be-revealed, Elphen Chronicles waistcoat.

    We invite you to join us on our journey through the beautiful Highlands of Scotland, as we make our way to the Workshop of Textile Artist, Ruth Black - - ruth-black.co.uk

    Hand-made by Artists, in the Highlands of Scotland, the process for my Elphen waistcoat, originally started many months earlier with our first visit and further discussions during a follow-up meeting; in which our partner and Design Director, Sunita Gahir, set out her vision for this unique waistcoat.

    Step along with us, into Ruth’s weaving shed and workshop, as Eileen and I get to see for the first time how Ruth intended to bring our collective ideas to life.

    You will come to appreciate that this is ‘painting with thread’, as you watch Ruth explain her creative interpretation of my original artworks.

    This is one of many FREE-TO-VIEW Bonus Features, in which we invite you to peek into the process of the various elements that accompany my second book in the Elphen Chronicles.

    Don’t miss out on the magical journey that we’re enjoying with Liza Mulholland, our Music Director, as she sets about composing and producing the Elphen soundscape - vimeo.com/ondemand/elphenvignettes301/233357559

    You will progressively discover that ‘Webstrand – the Tooth Gatherer’ is so much more than just one book, as we share more with you, from fellow artists, whom we invite to work with us.

    Welcome to my studio and the ‘Elphen Chronicles’ by Paul Taggart …

    Being a solitary child I spent many hours alone in my grandmother’s garden. One heavily overgrown area particularly entranced me, for within its depths lay a circular swathe of fine green grass. By sitting at its centre and half closing my eyes I would be enchanted to find myself encircled by blue butterflies that appeared as if from nowhere.

    The magic of these exquisite creatures never left me and a chance request from one of our personal friends for a fairy painting encouraged me to fulfill the dream that had been with me ever since those childhood days.

    Which is how, over twenty years ago, I found myself bringing to life something that had gripped my imagination since childhood, a new genre of mysterious winged creatures. During the light of day I would take up my brush and palette to work on the paintings that were enchanting me. As I painted I found the story of Elphen developing in my head, so that once the light had gone from the day I would swap brush and palette for pen and paper to capture their lives.

    For the months I was engaged in capturing these new creatures in paintings, I became so engrossed that all other paintings and books were forsaken, in order to free my mind to concentrate on completing the first book in the Elphen Chronicles.

    Welcome to my easel and the world of Webstrand …

    Since publishing Book 1, I have portrayed more and more Elphen, written a number of short stories and am in the process of completing the final oil paintings for Book 2, started some fifteen years ago. Once again much of my work as a Fine Artist was set to one side as this labour of love took hold of my brushes, paint and palette.

    I found myself inhabiting this world, a world whose pull was so strong that it emerged before me on the surface of each painting, as if allowing me to enter and experience it for myself.

    The story rewrote itself, time and again; draft after draft.

    Painting after painting, the collection grew; I found myself working on four at any given time.

    Five years on and here you join me as I work on one of the final paintings …

  5. Welcome to ‘Watch & Wander through the Elphen Chronicles by Paul Taggart’, where you join us in our studio in the Highlands of Scotland and our November 2017 update about this specific Masterworks oil painting, currently a work in progress.

    Whether you are a painter, or an art collector; someone who is interested in the world of Elphen Chronicles or a collector of published works; or someone who is simply intrigued by watching an artist at work, we do hope you enjoy peeking over my shoulder as I work away at my easel.

    The purpose of this start-to-finish series of videos is to share with you the traditional oil painting processes that I employ on my paintings. In this particular case, those techniques that I am using for this unique Elphen Chronicles oil painting, created specifically for the wraparound jacket for my upcoming book, ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’, the second book in my Elphen Chronicles.

    So do please join me on this journey that takes me from the first drawing out of this oil painting, to the final brush-stroke; all of which is being filmed in real-time and released as the painting progresses. As of this November update, we have released eighteen episodes; more will follow, until this Masterworks reaches its natural conclusion.

    In the previous ‘updates’ which you can watch as Bonus Features in this VOD set, I introduced you to the background for Elphen Chronicles and shared with you a number of my large Masterworks oil paintings which form the very heart of Book Two and on which the story of ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’ is founded.

    Now I would like to introduce you to more of these paintings, all of which have been produced using the same traditional oil painting techniques that I have adapted for this collection.

    In addition to these Masterworks oil paintings, I am currently completing an extensive portfolio of Story Vignette oil paintings to accompany the story text running throughout this book. For these I am using a technique that is unique to myself, developed specifically for this ever-growing collection. These are also being filmed in real-time and are being released on a Chapter-by-Chapter basis, in individual box-sets.

    At the time of filming our November 2017 update, we had released a number of videos in which you can watch me working at my easel on a selection of Story Vignettes from the first three chapters. Since then we have released further videos for Chapter 4, with more to come between now and our next update. So do please catch-up with our happenings, from the links listed below.

    Not to mention quite a few Bonus Features, in which we invite you to join us for FREE-TO-VIEW behind-the-scenes reveals of various other happenings on ‘Elphen Chronicles’.

    Catch-up with how our Music Director and Collaborator, Liza Mulholland, is developing the Elphen Soundscape - vimeo.com/ondemand/elphenchronicles/246948711

    Join us in Textile Artist, Ruth Black’s weaving shed and studio, to see how my special Elphen waistcoat came to life - vimeo.com/ondemand/elphenchronicles/242025844

    As always, this comes with best wishes from Eileen and myself, not to mention, Sunita and Liza and of course, our Elphen friends, Webstrand and Starfire.
