      Gracias a Shaily y Javi por este encargo... Este dibujo de 200x50 es el más grande que he hecho hasta ahora. Cuenta un poco la historia de cualquier relación sentimental mediante un tema primaveral y de izquierda a derecha. He trabajado en él durante tres semanas, escaneando los pasos en grafito, tinta china y finalmente acuarela.

            This is a BUILD-UP SERIES OF WORKSHOPS in which YOU CAN SEND US REQUESTS for SUBJECT SPECIFIC WORKSHOPS – to do so simply add your suggestion as a comment below and it will be added to our ‘subject request’ list – THE CLOSING DATE FOR REQUESTS FOR FILMING THE NEXT WORKSHOP is AUGUST 1st 2015 WE WILL TAKE THE MOST POPULAR SUBJECT – SO IF YOU SEE YOUR SUBEJCT ALREADY REQUESTED BELOW – THEN PLEASE USE THE REPLY FACILITY TO ADD YOUR NAME UNDER THE SUBJECT THAT WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED – this will help to reduce duplication. EPISODE 5 – WORKSHOP 2 [Boat on Lake]– FREE-TO-DOWNLOAD reference photograph available from artworkshopwithpaul on Flickr - https://www.flickr.com/photos/paul_taggart_artist_and_author/ Welcome to my studio in the Highlands of Scotland. Some while ago I was asked for help with starting off in drawing which resulted in the first Equipment Focus on the basics of graphite pencils and sticks, which kicks off this build-up series of workshops - in which YOU CAN SEND US REQUESTS for SUBJECTS. Filmed in real-time, with no editing I take you on the first steps of a journey into this world by following through with an Equipment Focus on paper wipers for graphite, an essential element for your drawing kit. The accompanying Workshop shows an unusual approach to drawing, using graphite shavings and a kneadable putty erase. Adapted from one of the methods I use for working out the tonal values of a painting, this can be exploited as a stand-alone technique. Have you tried blending mediums for use with graphite? The Equipment Focus and accompanying Workshop may prove thought-provoking and provide you with even more ways to manipulate graphite for different results. As with all of my tutorials, you are taken through each and every stroke from beginning to end ………….. accompanied by my running commentary throughout. Interested in following more workshops on drawing? Why not tell us what you would suggest by way of subject for the next workshop; which will be added here once it has been filmed. All you need to do is read the detailed VOD page description in which we set out the way in which to go about making your suggestion; using the comments facility on this VOD page. Value-for-money is our philosophy and each tutorial in this build-up series will be available to rent or buy at a fraction of the cost that you would pay for a similar length DVD. With best wishes from Eileen and Paul Artist and Author Paul Taggart has worked with people who paint for pleasure, whether as a pursuit or as professionals. Over the forty plus years that he has done so, including his fourteen how-to illustrated books, it has been his policy to share as much information as possible - for he passionately believes that everyone is given the chance to develop.

            • [Workshop 2] Blending Mediums for Graphite – Painting & Drawing Workshops with Paul Taggart VOD

              Filmed in real-time, with no editing, this introductory workshop n which Artist & Author Paul Taggart is working with Blending Mediums for Graphite is intended to expand your repertoire of drawing techniques – a technique we refer to as Dry’n’Wet – in which you are introduced to the possibilities of using graphite pencils & sticks in a more painterly manner. A COMPLETE WORKSHOP – in which you are taken through each and every stroke from beginning to end; accompanied by Paul’s running commentary throughout. The process used is of working in three layers, from light to dark – in a similar manner to working in watercolour paints. STAGE 1 – WORKING WITH DRY PENCIL STROKES – Paul commences by lightly sketching in the main structure of the composition – this is completed with a 2mm clutch pencil. He then switches to an HB Graphite Stick – using the side of the lead (the shoulder) to block in the lightest values – much as he would do in painting using the side of the brush-head, you will hear Paul say that this is like “…. working with the interlocking pieces of a jigsaw puzzle ……….” – each piece locking together to reveal the whole. The 3B graphite stick is used for middle values, the 6B graphite stick for denser/heavier values. STAGE 2 – WORKING WITH THE ‘WET’ BLENDER Paul now switches to more painterly strokes; manipulating the blender to emulate a painting brush – in other words he exploits directional blender strokes and techniques to create texture and effects. Not only does the clear/colourless blender ‘pull’ the graphite on the surface allowing it to be manipulated; but it also serves to fix the graphite in place, thus stabilizing the strokes. Reflections, shadows, values – all are rendered through these techniques, with a kneadable putty eraser used to clean up specific areas where a lighter effect is required. The 3B graphite is also brought into play for selective areas of shadow and definition and ‘ticks’ of focus. STAGE 3 – IS WHERE EVERY TOOL IN THE KIT IS EXPLOTIED TO MAXIMUM EFFECT IN PULLING TOGETHER THIS PAINTERLY DRAWING – brush and thinner is used to soften the sky and some areas of water, plus some of the denser shadow areas. As is the colourless blender marker; which also comes into its own when used to create those lighter ripples that run across the water’s surface. Finally the kneadable putty eraser is used to negatively create those highlight and lighter areas; before final accent touches are added with the 6B graphite stick. USE THIS TUTORIAL IN CO-ORDINATION with the companion Equipment Focus that has been filmed to accompany this tutorial. Artist and Author Paul Taggart has worked with people who paint for pleasure, whether as a pursuit or as professionals. Over the forty plus years that he has done so, including his fourteen how-to illustrated books, it has been his policy to share as much information as possible - for he passionately believes that everyone is given the chance to develop.

                In this Equipment Focus Artist & Author Paul Taggart introduces you to three simple, yet relatively unknown ‘drawing tools’, which will open up a world of new possibilities to working with pencils and graphite pencils – that of blending mediums. Blending mediums allow the user to exploit ‘painterly’ techniques within drawing – which we refer to as the technique of working dry’n’wet – yielding some exciting additions to anyone’s repertoire of techniques. INTRODUCTION – after briefly outlining three standard pencil types, you are introduced to a liquid blending medium, then a ‘marker’ style blender and finally a spray solvent, showing the principles of how they work in dissolving lead. Paul then switches to three differing densities of graphite pencils and demonstrates some exciting possibilities with the blending marker and a kneadable putty eraser. Use this tutorial in co-ordination with the companion Workshop that has been filmed to accompany this tutorial. Although a short tutorial; as ever with Paul, this video is packed full of hints and tips.

                  Although the technique demonstrated here is one that Artist & Author Paul Taggart uses to work out the tonal values of the composition for one of his Masterworks; IT MAKES FOR AN EXCITING DRAWING technique in its own right – one in which the principal drawing tool is a kneadable putty eraser – not to mention saved shavings from sharpening your graphite pencils and sticks. If you already enjoy the process of drawing, then consider this as a newly acquired drawing skill. For anyone terrified of setting pencil to paper this is an ideal alternative and demonstrates how being able to draw with a pencil is definitely not a prerequisite for learning to paint. Here you are working from dark to light; as opposed to the process of working from light to dark that is more commonly associated with drawing. An unusual technique, it is one that Paul believes will help you get over that mistaken belief that you need to be proficient in drawing – this process is loose and ‘brushy’ in nature.
