Lesson 2 – ‘[Series 4] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Pastels with Paul Taggart’



LESSON 2 and work continues on preparing the textural underlayer that was started in LESSON 1 on which the pastel work is subsequently applied; the preparatory work for which was previously covered, as detailed below. Paul introduces you to the texture paste and brushes with which this textured underlayer is rendered and passes on a multitude of hints and tips for how to work with textured paste. Close-up shots allow you to see not only how Paul applies the texture, but also the resultant effect and how both the texture paste and brushes can be exploited and manipulated to their fullest to achieve myriad different textures. See this as an opportunity to experiment and discover for yourself how these tools could provide you with an invaluable source of creativity in your pastel work. As with all of Paul’s tutorials, he works on the basis of providing you with various techniques, with which you can move forward in your work, to develop unique styles and techniques of your own. Watch as Paul experiments himself with different approaches to ‘sculpt’ and mimic the textures that inspire him in the subject, which was deliberately chosen for its varied textural characteristics. You will see him stipple and scuff, drag and sgraffito, blot and smooth, using a bristle brush and a smooth brush, with directional brush-strokes and more. This is exciting stuff, imbuing the composition with energetic characteristics.

Having allowed the underlayer to dry completely you NOW MOVE ON TO CREATING THE DARK UNDERPAINTING – which is where the accents in the composition are established. You could work in watercolours, or acrylics for this layer. However, Paul now switches to SOFT PASTELS, which, once applied, are then strengthened and fixed to the surface through the use of acrylic medium.

For this dark underpainting he is also MAXIMISING COMPLEMENTARY COLOURS to create a vibrant contrast to the rather subdued colour palette that appears throughout this composition’s subject matter. Again, exciting and exhilarating stuff.

Again you will hear Paul encourage you to experiment with different approaches to this underpainting, both in terms of the method, the media, the technique and the colour choices.

LESSON 2 ENDS with the completed application of the dry soft pastels, in preparation of the next stage in rendering this dark underpainting.

TECHNIQUE – For the main composition you will be working with a three-stage system for creating physical texture. Physical texture may seem a little strange for pastels, which are generally simply applied to pastel paper or to a surface that has a ‘tooth’.

To explain this fully, Paul refers you to the study that was created for [Series 2], the view of an Italian village. In this you will see that all of the textures are created visually; they are ‘visual’ textures that rely solely on the texture of the ‘tooth’ of the surface on which the pastel painting is worked.

Imagine, if instead of simply relying on the tooth of the pastel paper, you could create and therefore control, the texture over which the pastel is laid. This would also allow you the opportunity to create a stronger base, one that would enable you to apply more layers of pastel – which, in turn, gives you the opportunity to exploit the richness of these pigments, much as you would when working in layers with the traditional technique of working from the darkest accents through to the super-highlights.

Furthermore, this controlled application would result in ‘structural’ texture, as opposed to merely ‘visual’ texture. For which I am using texture paste.

Lesson 1 – ‘[Series 4] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Pastels with Paul Taggart’



In LESSON 1 you go straight into preparing the textured ‘underlayer’ on which the pastel work is subsequently applied; the preparatory work for which was previously covered, as detailed below. Artist & Author, Paul Taggart introduces you to the texture paste and brushes with which this textured underlayer is rendered and passes on a multitude of hints and tips for how to work with textured paste. Close-up shots allow you to see not only how Paul applies the texture, but also the resultant effect and how both the texture paste and brushes can be exploited and manipulated to their fullest to achieve myriad different textures.

As with all of Paul’s tutorials, he works on the basis of providing you with various techniques, with which you can move forward in your work, to develop unique styles and techniques of your own.

Watch as Paul experiments with different approaches to ‘sculpt’ and mimic the textures that inspire him in the subject, which was deliberately chosen for its varied textural characteristics. You will see him stipple and scuff, drag and sgraffto, blot and smooth, using a bristle brush and a smooth brush, with directional brush-strokes and more. This is exciting stuff, imbuing the composition with energetic characteristics.

This stage of working the underlayer continues in LESSON 2.

TECHNIQUE – For the main composition you will be working with a three-stage system for creating physical texture. Physical texture may seem a little strange for pastels, which are generally simply applied to pastel paper or to a surface that has a ‘tooth’.

SUBJECT – You can either work-along with Paul on the same subject, or use your own, it is entirely up to you – for which we provide FREE-TO-DOWNLOAD REFERENCE PHOTOGRAPHS available from Paul’s official account on Flickr – https://www.flickr.com/photos/paul_taggart_artist_and_author/

PREPARATORY COMPOSITIONAL WORK – is covered in our box-set ‘Composition Matters’, in which you can follow the reference gathering, thumbnails, tonal drawing and transference to the painting surface – https://vimeo.com/ondemand/techscompositionmatters

In the ten lessons in this box-set Paul takes you step-by-step from the first strokes of texture paste right through to the finishing highlights on this composition.

Everything you need to work-along with Paul and, as with all of his tutorials, each lesson is filmed in real-time and nothing is held back.

There is no editing-out, no speed-painting, no skipping stages.

Everything is shared with you, nothing is left out of either his demonstration, or running commentary.

Close-up shots not only allow you to see how the method of application affects the resultant texture, but also show the effect of blending and how pastel strokes can be worked like painting with a brush – which is why Paul always refer to using pastels as ‘pastel painting’.

Lesson 24 – ‘[Series 4] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’



Once again, Artist & Author Paul Taggart purposefully goes against the normal procedure of working through the defined layers; so that you can follow-along at a gentle pace and thereby gain a better understanding of the role of impasto and its influence on subsequent glazes. The usual method of working through this traditional technique being to work in layers as follows:-

Layer 1 – drawing out : blocking-in with thin underpainting : re-drawing to establish some detail
Layer 2 – impasto to establish structural and visual texture (this layer can also comprise a number of layers)
Layer 3 – glazing (which can comprise of as many glazing layers as you wish to introduce)

Lesson 24 opens with Paul completing the last section of impasto to the cliff on the left of the composition – where he uses both brush and painting knife to achieve a variety of texture. The painting was set aside at this point to ensure that this impasto section is dry enough to continue with the final sections of glazes. NOTE : As Paul explains in this lesson, it is imperative to allow any impasto underpainting to dry before proceeding further.

Then it is on to the FINAL AREAS of GLAZING; started in this lesson and completed in Lesson 25. First to get Paul’s attention – the sandy beach that runs between the grassy foreshore and the middle distance rocky beach. This is about light and shade and aerial perspective, easily dealt with in glazes and tints.

Moving forward, glazes are now used to enrich and enliven the various characteristics and tonal values of the swathes of grass, working through from the darkest of accents through to the sun-kissed yellow-green blades of grass.

You will hear Paul say time and again that glazes such as these can be many-layered to effect more and more subtle surface colour mixing. The key here is to experiment, remembering that at any time you can remove an unwanted glaze.

To learn more about working with thick/impasto paint mixes, please refer to the box-set ‘[Series 3] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’ – which is the companion set for this Series 4; in which Paul is breaking down the layers into detailed guides that will help you to understand the nature of each layer – https://vimeo.com/ondemand/artworkshopwithpauloils3

In this series Paul sets out to demystify the whole experience of working with glazes; so that you can see glaze mixes in their raw form, how they look on the surface and how they interact with each other and underlying textures and colours. We’re trying something really different to do this, something we hope will take the apprehension out of this most beautiful of techniques; so why not let Paul gently guide you through the exciting ‘art of glazing’ – why not let this be THE BEGINNING OF YOUR MAGICAL JOURNEY into the world of GLAZING and what a journey it will turn out to be.

The landscape subject matter is identical across the four sets in this series, so that you can properly assess and compare how [1] glazing mixes interact with each other, [2] how they do so with tonal underpaintingand [3] how they do so with underlying colours and texture – finishing off with [4] the fourth tutorial set, in which you will be combining these various aspects.

We supply free-to-download reference photographs, should you wish to work-along with Paul – you can also work-along on a subject of your own choosing, it is entirely up to you – available from artworkshopwithpaul on Flickr – https://www.flickr.com/photos/paul_taggart_artist_and_author/

‘Lesson 25 – [Series 4] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’



Now you might appreciate our choice of subject, for when this composition is completed the viewer is left wondering what awaits them as they walk round the cliff.

Lesson 25 brings this box-set to a close, in which the entire series of studies has been filmed in real-time and worked through to the natural conclusion for each of the four main studies, preceded by the opening Exercise. Artist & Author Paul Taggart turns his attention to the final areas of sandstone – firstly, the footpath that traverses a large slab of flat sandstone; secondly, the large cliff-face scattered with vegetation, loose earth and bright yellow flowers.

Having previously applied the impasto layer in Lesson 24 and waited for that to dry, Paul is now able to finish off with the final glazes. Another GEM of a LESSON, packed full of hints and tips, especially in regard to how to exploit the glazing medium and the best way to work with appropriate brushes, for an area that features both flat slabs of impasto and brushy texture.

Watch out for those final touches of pure, bright glaze applied to underlying white impasto to render the bright yellow flowers.

Finally … stand back and wonder at the journey through this landscape, which in turn has led you onto the magical journey into glazing.

Throught this series, Paul has purposefully gone against the normal procedure of working through the defined layers; so that you can follow-along at a gentle pace and thereby gain a better understanding of the role of impasto and its influence on subsequent glazes. The usual method of working through this traditional technique being to work in layers as follows:-

Layer 1 – drawing out : blocking-in with thin underpainting : re-drawing to establish some detail
Layer 2 – impasto to establish structural and visual texture (this layer can also comprise a number of layers)

You will hear Paul say time and again that glazes such as these can be many-layered to effect more and more subtle surface colour mixing. The key here is to experiment, remembering that at any time you can remove an unwanted glaze.

The landscape subject matter is identical across the four sets in this series, so that you can properly assess and compare how [1] glazing mixes interact with each other, [2] how they do so with tonal underpaintingand [3] how they do so with underlying colours and texture – finishing off with [4] the fourth tutorial set, in which you will be combining these various aspects.

Lesson 21 – ‘[Series 4] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’



Artist & Author Paul Taggart continues to move through the painting in sections, first working up the impasto layer, then, once that is dry, working over it with glazes. You have seen the top third of this painting being treated in this way, now you join Paul as he prepares to work up the impasto layer on the sea and the pebbled beach of the middle distance, as well as the slipway.

Having watched the process and heard Paul’s thought process in applying the impasto layer to receive subsequently applied glazes you are more informed on the influence that impasto has on forthcoming glazes. Moving on, Paul not only attends to the matter of light and shade, but also to the matter of aerial and linear perspective; which involves graduated mixes and varying colour temperatures.

Quite apart from working with directional and variable brush-strokes, Paul also takes the opportunity to show how tonking can be brought into play to effect structural texture and demonstrates another unusual technique, decalcomania.

The message here, being that to experiment with different methods of achieving texture can yield interesting and exciting results, which will be enhanced and enriched by subsequent glazes.

So, once again, Artist & Author Paul Taggart purposefully goes against the normal procedure of working through the defined layers; so that you can follow-along at a gentle pace and thereby gain a better understanding of the role of impasto and its influence on subsequent glazes. The usual method of working through this traditional technique being to work in layers as follows:-

Layer 1 – drawing out : blocking-in with thin underpainting : re-drawing to establish some detail
Layer 2 – impasto to establish structural and visual texture (this layer can also comprise a number of layers)
Layer 3 – glazing (which can comprise of as many glazing layers as you wish to introduce)

To learn more about working with thick/impasto paint mixes, please refer to the box-set ‘[Series 3] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’ – which is the companion set for this Series 4; in which Paul is breaking down the layers into detailed guides that will help you to understand the nature of each layer – https://vimeo.com/ondemand/artworkshopwithpauloils3

In this series Paul sets out to demystify the whole experience of working with glazes; so that you can see glaze mixes in their raw form, how they look on the surface and how they interact with each other and underlying textures and colours.

Lesson 7 – ‘[Series 4] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’



See this as an exercise and concentrate on the glazing mixes, the technique and the results; don’t think of this in terms of a ‘finished painting’. In this first version of the landscape Artist & Author Paul Taggart introduces you to various approaches, various glazing mediums and various techniques; so that you get a wider understanding of what is possible when working with glazing. Work continues on the landscape exercise in which Paul is using a Line & Wash technique to demonstrate the purity of glazes, which he refers to as working with glazes in their raw form. This allows you to concentrate on the nature of glazes, rather than become distracted by any underlying texture/surface.

Lesson 7 and Paul continues to take you through the linework and, as you will hear in Paul’s detailed running commentary, you will learn that linework is not different than any other aspect of painting, in that aerial perspective still applies; which is why the linework becomes darker and warmer in nature as it moves forward through to the front of the subject.

This linework is also worked in a ‘glazing’ mix so that its nature is balanced with those previously laid glazing colour mixes. Firstly Paul works with an oily thinner to produce the most fluid mix possible and to show you how this behaves. He then switches to an alkyd medium, so that once again, you can see how this behaves, both on the palette and on the surface.

This lesson is so much more than merely applying linework – as ever it is packed-full of hints, tips and techniques in brushwork, colour mixing, the nature of accents, exploiting a single brush to provide highly descriptive linework – you will come to appreciate just what can be achieved with fluid and selective brush linework.

Lesson 7 is the fifth episode in the first set of four start-to-finish tutorials, in which the landscape subject matter is identical, so that you can properly assess and compare how glazing mixes interact with each other, how they do so with tonal underpainting, how they do so with underlying colours and texture – finishing off with the fourth tutorial set, in which you will be combining these various aspects.

In this Series 4, Artist & Author Paul Taggart has seriously stripped down glazing, so that you can see glaze mixes in their raw form, how they look on the surface and how they interact with each other and underlying textures and colours. We’re trying something really different to do this, something we hope will take the mystery out of this most beautiful of techniques.

So why not let Paul gently guide you through the exciting ‘art of glazing’ – why not let this be THE BEGINNING OF YOUR MAGICAL JOURNEY into the world of GLAZING and what a journey it will turn out to be – see for yourself how the first SIMPLE GLAZES in this episode are mixed on the palette, applied to the surface and blended together. We promise you will NOT BE DISAPPOINTED with this first step – it was exciting to film and careful close-up filming allows you to see precisely how those glazes work.

We supply free-to-downlad reference photographs, should you wish to work-along with Paul – you can also work-along on a subject of your own choosing, it is entirely up to you – available from artworkshopwithpaul on Flickr – https://www.flickr.com/photos/paul_taggart_artist_and_author/

As with all of Paul’s tutorials – these are all filmed in real-time – no editing, no speed-painting, no skipping stages. Everything is shared with you; nothing is left out of either Paul’s demonstration, or Paul’s running commentary.

Lesson 10 – ‘[Series 4] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’



By working-along with Artist & Author Paul Taggart on this exercise, you will gain a far greater understanding of the many ways you can manipulate and exploit the unique characteristics of glazing – don’t hold back, experimentation being the key. Don’t just try this work-along with Paul, take what you learn in this second approach and vary your underpainting and your glazes – see how cool glazes work over warm underpainting and vice versa. Increase the number of layers of glazes.

NOTHING IS WASTED in EXPERIMENTING – OTHER THAN THE CHANCE to TAKE YOUR OIL PAINTING TO A WHOLE OTHER, MORE MAGICAL LEVEL.

In Lesson 10 you will continue to work gradually down the composition, in other words from the back of the view through to the foreground; just as you would in any painting and as a consequence you are governed by the need to follow the basics of aerial perspective.

Although Paul is working on a smooth surface, there is nevertheless visual texture throughout this composition, initially produced in the tonal underpainting – this will be maximised throughout the glazing layer, either through overlying glazes, or manipulating glazes to strengthen the characteristics of the underlying texture.

Lesson 10 is the third episode in the second set of four start-to-finish tutorials, in which the landscape subject matter is identical, so that you can properly assess and compare how glazing mixes interact with each other, how they do so with tonal underpainting, how they do so with underlying colours and texture – finishing off with the fourth tutorial set, in which you will be combining these various aspects. See this as an exercise and concentrate on the glazing mixes, the technique and the results; don’t think of this in terms of a ‘finished painting’. The purpose of this second version of the simplified landscape is to show how raw glazes work over a tonal underpainting; in this example worked through with one colour, black. It might be worth your while trying this out as several exercises, where you change the underlying tonal colour to see how overlaid raw glazes behave, how the resultant ‘surface’ colour mixing affects your artwork.

In this Series 4, Paul has seriously stripped down glazing, so that you can see glaze mixes in their raw form, how they look on the surface and how they interact with each other and underlying textures and colours. We’re trying something really different to do this, something we hope will take the mystery out of this most beautiful of techniques; so why not let Paul gently guide you through the exciting ‘art of glazing’ – why not let this be THE BEGINNING OF YOUR MAGICAL JOURNEY into the world of GLAZING and what a journey it will turn out to be.

We supply free-to-downlad reference photographs, should you wish to work-along with Paul – you can also work-along on a subject of your own choosing, it is entirely up to you – available from artworkshopwithpaul on Flickr – https://www.flickr.com/photos/paul_taggart_artist_and_author/

As with all of Paul’s tutorials – these are all filmed in real-time – no editing, no speed-painting, no skipping stages. Everything is shared with you; nothing is left out of either Paul’s demonstration, or Paul’s running commentary.

Lesson 4 – ‘[Series 4] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’



LESSON 4 and you continue with the landscape in which you are working-along with Artist & Author Paul Taggart using what amounts to a Line & Wash Technique – EXCEPT THAT this is purely a device by which you can truly appreciate the clarity and purity of creating and applying pigmented transparent glazes.

See this as an exercise and concentrate on the glazing mixes, the technique and the results; don’t think of this in terms of a ‘finished painting’.

In this version of the landscape Paul will gradually introduce you to various approaches, various glazing mediums and various techniques; so that you get a wider understanding of what is possible when working with glazing – he describes this as WORKING with GLAZES in their RAWEST FORM.

In Lesson 3 Paul used two ‘thin/fluid’ mediums, one to create the linework, the other for the coloured glazes. Now, you will see how to work with slightly ‘thicker/stiffer’ mediums – you will learn how this affects your glaze mixing, the way you apply it to the surface, how to manipulate and exploit the characteristics of this ‘thicker’ glaze AND HOW TO WORK IN LAYERS with your glazes.

EVERYTHING YOU LEARN IN THIS EPISODE is INVALUABLE in DEVELOPING YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO MAXIMISE GLAZES for the results of glazing are quite magical, there is no question about that and it certainly isn’t something that is exclusively for the professional at the top of their tree – far from it, it is something that every artist can enjoy adding to their repertoire of painting techniques.

Lesson 4 is the second episode in the first set of four start-to-finish tutorials, in which the landscape subject matter is identical, so that you can properly assess and compare how glazing mixes interact with each other, how they do so with tonal underpainting, how they do so with underlying colours and texture – finishing off with the fourth tutorial set, in which you will be combining these various aspects.

In this Series 4, Artist & Author Paul Taggart has seriously stripped down glazing, so that you can see glaze mixes in their raw form, how they look on the surface and how they interact with each other and underlying textures and colours. We’re trying something really different to do this, something we hope will take the mystery out of this most beautiful of techniques.

So why not let Paul gently guide you through the exciting ‘art of glazing’ – why not let this be THE BEGINNING OF YOUR MAGICAL JOURNEY into the world of GLAZING and what a journey it will turn out to be – see for yourself how the first SIMPLE GLAZES in this episode are mixed on the palette, applied to the surface and blended together. We promise you will NOT BE DISAPPOINTED with this first step – it was exciting to film and careful close-up filming allows you to see precisely how those glazes work.

We supply free-to-downlad reference photographs, should you wish to work-along with Paul – you can also work-along on a subject of your own choosing, it is entirely up to you – available from artworkshopwithpaul on Flickr – https://www.flickr.com/photos/paul_taggart_artist_and_author/

As with all of Paul’s tutorials – these are all filmed in real-time – no editing, no speed-painting, no skipping stages. Everything is shared with you; nothing is left out of either Paul’s demonstration, or Paul’s running commentary.

Lesson 12 – ‘[Series 4] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’



As with all of Artist & Author Paul Taggart’s tutorials – this lesson is filmed in real-time – no editing, no speed-painting, no skipping stages. Everything is shared with you; nothing is left out of either Paul’s demonstration, or Paul’s running commentary.

Lesson 12 and you join Paul as he starts work on the THIRD SET of TUTORIALS in Series 4, in which he is stripping down glazing to its bare bones as he sets out to demystify the whole experience of working with glazes; so that you can see glaze mixes in their raw form, how they look on the surface and how they interact with each other and underlying textures and colours.

The purpose of this third version of the simplified landscape is to show how raw glazes work over an impasto layer; as you would when using traditional techniques of oil painting. Here Paul uses a white ‘impasto’ underpainting, in the form of acrylic texture paste – so that you can fully appreciate exactly how glazes interact with the texture of an impasto layer.

By keeping the underlying impasto clean in this way, you will fully appreciate the exact nature of brush-strokes and how you can exploit various brushes to achieve texture and manipulate brush-strokes when applying impasto paint.

See this as an exercise and concentrate on the glazing mixes, the technique and the results; don’t think of this in terms of a ‘finished painting’. You could experiment with differently coloured impasto textures, to see how overlaid raw glazes behave, how the resultant ‘surface’ colour mixing affects your artwork.

We’re trying something really different to do this, something we hope will take the apprehension out of this most beautiful of techniques; so why not let Paul gently guide you through the exciting ‘art of glazing’ – why not let this be THE BEGINNING OF YOUR MAGICAL JOURNEY into the world of GLAZING and what a journey it will turn out to be.

The landscape subject matter is identical across the four sets in this series, so that you can properly assess and compare how [1] glazing mixes interact with each other, [2] how they do so with tonal underpaintingand [3] how they do so with underlying colours and texture – finishing off with [4] the fourth tutorial set, in which you will be combining these various aspects.

By working-along with Artist & Author Paul Taggart on this exercise, you will gain a far greater understanding of the many ways you can manipulate and exploit the unique characteristics of glazing – don’t hold back, experimentation being the key. Don’t just try this work-along with Paul, take what you learn in this second approach and vary your underpainting and your glazes – see how cool glazes work over warm underpainting and vice versa. Increase the number of layers of glazes.

NOTHING IS WASTED in EXPERIMENTING – OTHER THAN THE CHANCE to TAKE YOUR OIL PAINTING TO A WHOLE OTHER, MORE MAGICAL LEVEL.
