Paul Taggart - Masterworks

Greetings from our studio in the Highlands of Scotland; where we film all of the tutorials that make up our various video-on-demand box-sets available on artworkshopwithpaul via Vimeo.

Painting is my life and my passion and it has been my pleasure to share that passion throughout the forty five years of my life as a Professional Fine Artist, Author of fourteen books and Presenter/Producer of the 400plus online videos that are currently available.

Technique was a ‘dirty’ word when I was attending art college, because it was deemed to stifle creativity – I do not subscribe to that belief; which is why it is my philosophy to reveal all and hold nothing back.

Authenticity is key to our work … which is why we select subjects as dedicated tutorials and film in real-time so that you get to watch-along with me from the absolute start to the very last stroke.

Each tutorial is also accompanied by my running commentary throughout – so that you can work-along with me, without fear of missing any hint, tip, technique, brush-stroke or colour mix.

We are also mindful of our worldwide audience and the affordability of our tutorials … which is why we price them as low as possible.

You can either rent each video at $1 … or better still, buy our tutorials outright … to watch time and time again, at a pace to suit you – which is something you can’t do when attending a class.

FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND artworkshopwithpaul on Vimeo

When you arrive at artworkshopwithpaul on Vimeo – click on the VOD tab to reveal all of our current catalogue of box-sets.

Browse through the various pages and click on any of the posters to reveal the trailer … along with everything you need to know about the box-set, including a full description of the contents, plus the price and total number of tutorial hours in the box-set and the length of each video. Click on each of the video titles listed in the VOD page to reveal a detailed description of the contents of any particular video.

Each series of ‘Learn to Enjoy Painting with Paul Taggart’ covers specific media and techniques in oils, acrylics, watercolours and pastels.

These are accompanied by companion ‘Painting Topical Techniques with Paul Taggart’ – all of which are detailed tutorials to help you further.

For example … ‘[Series 3] of Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’, which concentrates on the method of working with impasto, features a study piece, followed by the main composition, both of which you can follow every step of the way.

In the companion ‘[Series 3] Painting Topical Techniques for Oils with Paul Taggart’ you will find a tutorial on the basics of the impasto technique, followed by an Exercise tutorial. And there are more tutorials in this box-set which will prove invaluable in your painting repertoire, not just for when you’re using impasto.

‘Painting Equipment Focus with Paul Taggart’ is not about reviewing products … these box-sets are about the function of specific tools in specific media and how to use them – such as brushes for watercolours, pastels sticks, texture paste etc.

‘Learn to Enjoy Colour Mixing with Paul Taggart’ is an on-going, build-up series in which I set out to demystify the art of colour mixing through a simplified approach – so that you can fully enjoy the experience of mixing colours for yourself, from a nucleus palette of just six colours.

There are also various ‘Workshops with Paul Taggart’ and ‘Out and About with Paul’ box-sets, which again, are detailed work-along tutorials – no speed-paintings, nothing is edited out, just me at my easel, sharing everything for you to follow.

‘Learn to Enjoy Painting Portraits and Figures with Paul Taggart’ is another on-going series, which we intend to build-up into a comprehensive index of tutorials. Starting off with a box-set in which I demonstrate the basics of features, how to draw and paint them.

And finally, ‘Masterclass with Paul Taggart’, in which you are invited to look over my shoulder as I work on sections of one of my own Principal Collection paintings.

We do hope that in sharing my passion and the traditional techniques that I use in my work, we can help you expand your repertoire of methods and enjoy your painting experience that little bit more.

As ever, this welcome comes with best wishes for your painting, from Eileen and myself

Welcome to Artist & Author Paul Taggart’s Masterworks Channel, where you can view occasional filmed reveals of some of his Collectors’ Original Paintings.

“Painting is my passion - my life's work that encompasses the creation of Masterworks for collectors.

My career as a professional Fine Artist, Author, Presenter and Producer has spanned over forty years and in that time more than one thousand principal selling works have come off the easel – some of which can be seen in my online Galleries on my official website -

Traditional techniques form the basis of my particular method and process of working, which I maximise and manipulate to achieve the effect of light - the signature feature that is present in every piece.

I am particularly partial to oil painting, for there is nothing to surpass the sheer richness of this medium and the process. It is about painting in layers to create depth and using the inherent textures in a brushstroke. In oil painting we have a medium that can be opaque or transparent; thick or thin in its application, where the surface of the painting, being physical, affects the light falling on it.

The method of working from dark to light, building from initial dark layers through to the tiniest ticks of pure white highlights is combined with the use of traditional techniques such as glazing and tinting (as per the Old Masters). Enriching and enhancing the surface quality of oil paint is the process I employ extensively to achieve the quality I seek.

Watercolours, acrylics and pastels are all media for which I have also developed my own process and method.

In watercolours, the traditions of Wet on Wet, Wet on Dry and Line & Wash all come into play, either in their own right or in combination with each other.

Whilst acrylics provide me with a modern, versatile medium, I really expand their possibilities through bringing into play the traditional techniques found in oils and watercolours. Glazing, tinting, tonking and others, when combined with the textural qualities available through the use of acrylic paint, effect many exciting results.

Artists' Soft Pastels, being pure pigment allow me the intensity of colour unsurpassed in any other media. This vibrancy applies equally to the strong rich colours, as it does to the softest tints. The layering methods of oil painting are echoed in my pastel paintings, providing the depth and subtleties I require from my work.

Some of my Masterworks are published by us as Limited Edition Prints; details of which can be found on my main website –

Thank you for watching and best wishes from Paul and Eileen
