“Welcome to our Highland Studio and ‘[Series 5] of Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’, where we are Making LIGHT Work for You’ – the purpose of which is to show you how to look for light in your subject and how to maximise it in your painting; not only through a deeper understanding of the power that coloured greys can bring to your colour mixing palette, but also through the exploitation of the twin traditional oil painting techniques of glazing and tinting.
Work-along with me on this view and you will come to appreciate the quality of light in your subject, whatever the conditions of the day. Even an overcast landscape, on a seemingly dull day, is imbued with light in one form or another. The overall effect may be subtler, but look closely and you will discover myriad colours in the simplest of elements.
This is oil painting at its best, at its richest, at its most subtle, at its most exciting. Work-along with me and discover for yourself the beauty of working with the traditional method of building up layers, from dark to light; using all the techniques covered thus far in Series 1 to 4 of ‘Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’.
Check out each of the four companion ‘Painting Topical Techniques for Oils with Paul Taggart’ box-sets, from Series 1 to Series 4, to discover even more invaluable techniques, which will apply to this subject matter – such as Aerial Perspective, Structural and Visual Texture and so much more.
As with all our tutorials, everything is filmed in real-time, there is no speed painting here … no editing out … even problems and mistakes are shown, so that you will learn how to overcome them. Work-along with me and follow Eileen’s close-up filming to discover the joy of working with oil paints using traditional techniques, whilst I describe in detail the process and share a host of tips and hints through my running commentary.
You can either work-along with me on the same subject, or use your own, it is entirely up to you – we provide FREE-TO-DOWNLOAD REFERENCE PHOTOGRAPHS available from artworkshopwithpaul on Flickr – https://www.flickr.com/photos/paul_taggart_artist_and_author/
We look forward to your company and as always, send you best wishes for your painting, from Eileen and myself.
