Episode 102 | WHAT TO EAT DURING A BIKE RACE



So a little bit of house keeping

1. We’ve been forced over to Vimeo in the short term after having our account suspended. We’re not really sure why this video was flagged and then caused the account to be suspened, maybe you can judge for yourself

2. The 10% discount code for VLOG subscribers on all Decca kits is now live, just use the code ‘VLOG’ during the checkout www.neroracingbike.com/kits

3. Those #crookedlid photos … remember, they are photos! We’ve had a few people just tagging us and using the hashtag, but no photo … com’on we need that awesome look.

Ok, now a few people commented on Sunday’s race that I was wearing a skinsuit with no pockets. They were asking where I was putting my food (up the short leg) and what was I eating. So I go a little of the way to describe that today.

Also, we have a look at the major selection from Sunday’s race, and have a chat about how that came about. Fair to say it was quite a different method to how the criterium from the other week played out.

Finally, on my little rant. As this goes to air their website is still devoid of any material from the race. I’m happy to be proved wrong by a wonderful piece from NSW Cycling describing the event … go on, I dare you.

[Box-Set Trailer] Series 4 Learn to Enjoy Painting in Pastels with Paul Taggart’



Welcome to our Highland studio and ‘[Series 4] of Learn to Enjoy Painting in Pastels with Paul Taggart’.

TECHNIQUE – For the main composition we are 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, I refer 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.

SUBJECT – chosen for its variety of ‘structural’ texture. The weathered door, set into a highly textured stone wall, through which we can see a hidden garden beyond (long-since nurtured and gone to wildness). Foreground grasses and wild flowers, give us defining contrast, whilst the distant tangle of plants that occupy the space within the four boundary walls offer us aerial perspective and yet more, varied textures. You can either work-along with me 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 my 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://www.

In the ten lessons in this box-set I take 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 me and, as with all of my 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 my 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 I always refer to using pastels as ‘pastel painting’.

We look forward to your company and as always, send you best wishes for your painting, from Eileen and myself.

Chopper Everything’s going to be Alright part (2002)



I first went to Japan in 1999, I got to meet Chopper for the first time. I’d been a big fan of his skating since I saw his tricks in the 1996 FESN video by Takahiro Morita. I always looked for photos of him in Ollie Magazine too whenever I saw copies of that. When I finally met him for the first time it was at Spotaka, the local Osaka shop. He was so nice and courteous to a Northern English skateboarder with a weird little British company.
Every time I seemed to go to Japan after that I would meet Chopper, either coincidentally at a trade show, or I’d call him and go skateboarding with him. Our Japanese distributor at the time were the ones who connected us and got him to officially ride for Heroin. He said he liked the first video we had made “Good Shit” and so I was stoked to have him as part of the squad. He was actually the first Pro for Heroin Skateboards. When it came to filming his part for EGTBA, it’s a mash up of footage that he’d had around for a while that hadn’t been used for anything, and some filming trips to the UK where he would go out with Chris Massey and Alan Glass. I’ve always loved his unique style and creativity in skateboarding. I feel like I just wanted his style of mashing around the streets of Osaka to be brought over to our dirty British pavements. Alan Glass hit the nail on the head to use this Crass song, and I think it goes perfectly with Choppers skating. I heard this song the other day and it reminded me of how much I liked this part and made me think I should upload it to our Vimeo channel.

‘Lesson 10 – [Series 3] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’



In LESSON 10 you move forward into the middle distance and foreground – laying the first steps of your impasto build-up, not only from dark to light, but also from the smoother brush-strokes to texture, where you maximise the inherent qualities of the stiffer paint.

As ever, working gradually through change of values is the key. You will need to stop frequently and step back from your easel to assess the overall balance of your composition.

Paul’s focal points in his composition are the main stone cottage and foreground grasses – your may have something different in mind. Nevertheless, it is now that you need to establish in your mind’s eye exactly how much detail you intend to invest in your compositional focal points. You will hear Paul reiterate time and again, that implying detail is not necessarily about painting in minute detail and in this lesson you will appreciate how Paul intends to draw the viewer’s eye.

First to get Paul’s attention is the stone cottage as he lays down the darkest colours on the roof and the walls; followed by the next value in which he begins to fashion the slates and stones with which it is constructed. Corrective measures are taken to ensure these are rendered with accurate perspective.

To keep his composition balanced, Paul now also introduces the darkest accents and recesses of the vegetation that makes up the bottom half of the scene; followed by the first hints of the crumbling stone wall in the garden area and the rugged path that wends its way up to the white-washed building in the distance.

You will find more easy-to-follow lessons on perspective in buildings and in a landscape in the first few videos of ‘[Series 2] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’ – Paul’s detailed, but simply explained, tutorials on this subject will add hugely to your experience of dealing with perspective (which need not be the fearful subject it is often portrayed to be) – https://vimeo.com/ondemand/artworkshopwithpauloils2

As always, this lesson is filmed in real-time, to that you miss nothing of Paul’s brush-strokes, blending, colour mixes and process. And, as always you will pick up many hints and tips along the way as you listen to Paul’s running commentary throughout.

‘[Series 3] Painting Topical Techniques for Oils with Paul Taggart’ – https://vimeo.com/ondemand/awwptoiltechs03

LESSON 9 could be considered a workshop in it’s own right; one in which you will understand the importance of achieving correct and balanced values. You will be working on the trees that surround the distant white-washed building and the grassy slopes against which these trees stand.

You will also be introducing more ‘suggestive’ detail on the grassy section that occupies the middle distance, by way of adding rocks which lie scattered about the place.

Finally, you will watch as Paul adjusts the forefront building, which, as the focal point of this paintings matters most. This he effects through the use of negative painting.

Don’t be tempted into using small brushes; follow Paul’s lead by working with a brush that is larger than you would expect and you will be surprised at how large brushy strokes, seen in close-up, appear detailed when the camera pulls back to reveal the whole painting.

Working through from dark-to-light in graduated stages is the key, as is judging the correct values of the green paint mixes that you will be making for the various trees and grassy slopes.

As always, this lesson is filmed in real-time, to that you miss nothing of Paul’s brush-strokes, blending, colour mixes and process. And, as always you will pick up many hints and tips along the way as you listen to Paul’s running commentary throughout.

‘Lesson 4 – [Series 3] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’



Artist & Author Paul Taggart opens LESSON 4 by explaining his work on the rocks and boulders to this stage; how, on his painting, they are lighter in value than the photograph and the reason for them being so. This explanation serves to illustrate the importance of manipulating values to draw the viewer’s eye to the focus of your painting – in this case Paul wishes that to be the sheep and to that end he will be working these in stronger value changes. This is an invaluable tip and one worth taking on board.

The first stage in this lesson is to redraw, correct and refine the shapes of the two sheep in Paul’s study. From there he works through in layers of ever-lighter values and changing colour temperatures. Note how Paul concentrates on depicting areas of light, not on drawing in features and texture of the wool coat of the two sheep. This is an object lesson in sculpting form through painting light and dark accents – so throw away those fiddly little brushes; instead exploit that round bristle brush and concentrate on gradually working through values, catching those ‘slabs’ and ‘blobs’ of medium lights, highlights and super-highlights. Manipulate brush-strokes and texture with the impasto paint to depict the rough nature of the wool coats of the sheep. Also an object lesson in painting what appears to be a ‘white’ object.

Another lesson packed full of hints, tips, techniques and nuggets of information that are imparted through Paul’s running commentary throughout.

Remember this interim study is not about an accurate representation of the subject; it is the stepping stone into the main composition which starts in Lesson 5 and, as such, you should treat it as the opportunity to practice those paint mixes, how you apply the paint to the surface, how the paint behaves in conjunction with your brush-strokes, how to ‘model’ and ‘sculpt’ with brush and paint.

See also the Basics and Exercise Topical Technique tutorials in ‘[Series 3] Painting Topical Techniques for Oils with Paul Taggart’ as your introduction to working with Impasto – https://vimeo.com/ondemand/awwptoiltechs03

As always, this box-set is filmed in real-time; so that you get to work-along with Paul from start-to-finish on a couple of paintings; the first being a study to prepare you for the main composition, a landscape in which texture is the key.

You can work-long with Paul on the same subjects, for which we supply free-to-download reference photographs; or you can work on your own – it is entirely up to you – https://www.flickr.com/photos/paul_taggart_artist_and_author/

‘Lesson 14 – [Series 2] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Acrylics with Paul Taggart’



Lesson 14 and the end of this start-to-finish composition in which you have dealt with aerial perspective, a multitude of reflective surfaces and objects, various textures, differing effects of lights and darks – all of which are present in this view through a window in which the viewer has an interior and exterior scene to contemplate.

Now you will pick up a raft of hints and tips to help you successfully achieve glass objects, as you work-along with Artist & Author Paul Taggart and get to see in close-up the smallest of brush-strokes and ticks of super-highlights.

This is a stand-alone lesson in how to render glass objects, how to achieve clear transparent glass, coloured glass, iridescent lustres – volume and form, reflected lights, highlights and super-highlights.

As ever, this lesson is filmed in real-time, so you miss nothing of Paul’s colour mixes on his palette, none of his brush-strokes – nothing is left out, all is shared as you watch Paul’s demonstration and listen to his running commentary.

This is where the still-life tableau comes to life and in so doing, the rest of the composition.

SUBJECT – you can either follow along using the same reference photographs as Paul, or you are welcome to decide on your own ‘View Through My Window’ – the decision is entirely up to you.

‘Lesson 1 – [Series 3] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’



Welcome to Lesson 1 in ‘[Series 3] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’, one of the series in which Artist & Author Paul Taggart is breaking down the traditional oil painting method into its three principal layers, so that you can fully understand their respective qualities and roles and thereby extend your painting repertoire.

Before Paul gets going on the interim study which starts here in Lesson 1, your stepping stone between the ‘Topical Technique (Basics)’ and ‘Topical Technique (Exercise)’ available in ‘[Series 3] Painting Topical Techniques for Oils with Paul Taggart’ – https://vimeo.com/ondemand/awwptoiltechs03 – he reprises the principles of the traditional method of layering, where you work from Lean to Fat, Dark to Light and Thin to Thick.

The first lean layer has been covered in ‘[Series 2] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’ along with its companion box-set ‘[Series 2] Topical Techniques for Oils with Paul Taggart’ – which is to work with thinners – https://vimeo.com/ondemand/artworkshopwithpauloils2

Here, in [Series 3], Paul helps you to understand how to exploit the Impasto Technique as a painting technique in its own right – most commonly the middle ‘layer’, through which you would build structure and texture, working from dark to light.

Now you will learn how to exploit the middle impasto layer, where you will be working with stiff, tube-consistency paint; which Paul describes as the “…essence of oil painting itself.”

See also the Basics and Exercise Topical Technique tutorials in ‘[Series 3] Painting Topical Techniques for Oils with Paul Taggart’ as your introduction to working with Impasto – https://vimeo.com/ondemand/awwptoiltechs03

A always, this box-set is filmed in real-time; so that you get to work-along with Paul from start-to-finish on a couple of paintings; the first being a study to prepare you for the main composition, a landscape in which texture is the key.

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



THE PURPOSE OF LESSONS 1, 2 & 3 is to prepare you for the coming start-to-finish ‘View through a Window’ painting, by introducing you to the ‘art’ of painting transparent objects. You are gradually guided by Artist & Author Paul Taggart from the first sketching out of the subject, to the finishing sparkles of light that glint off those transparent objects.

THE LIGHT to DARK to LIGHT METHOD USED IN THIS STUDY will prepare you for the ‘View through a Window’; as will the use of technique of working solely with OPAQUE MIXES.

Detailed this subject may be – but the method is PAINTERLY which becomes evident as you follow this lesson.

THERE ARE TWO DISTINCT ASPECTS TO THIS LESSON – the first will prove a revelation in how to tackle a wooden subject; which in of itself will prove useful when depicting those textured elements in the forthcoming main composition in which stone and wood feature quite strongly. This is particularly important, given that all texture in these tutorials can only be achieved as ‘visual’ texture.

The second aspect deals with reflections on the surface – reflections in this case being on a solid object (the wooden table) and on transparent objects (the carafe and glass). Not only that, there are also the two aspects of dealing with reflections on ‘lit’ areas and quite separately within areas of ‘shadow’.

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO EXPLOIT THE TRADITIONAL OIL PAINTING TECHNIQUE OF TINTING – in this instance, invaluable in creating visual texture and surface colour mixing. Although working with opaque paint mixes, these mixes can be of varying fluidity and YOU WILL BE EXPLOITING THESE VARYING FLUID MIXES TO CONSIDERABLE EFFECT.

CLOSE-UP SHOTS ARE CRUCIAL in this tutorial as they allow you to see ‘through’ the surface of the painting – so that YOU GET TO SEE HOW THE PROCESS and TECHNIQUES WHICH YOU WILL BE EMPLOYING TRULY AFFECT THE OVERALL RESULT – for you get to see how varying layers of colour temperatures affect each other, how directional brush-strokes are crucial and MOST IMPORTANTLY YOU GET TO SEE THE ROLE OF SPECIFIC TECHNIQUES such as BLENDING, SCUFFS, DRAGGED BRUSH-STROKES and SOFTENING OFF, FEATHERING, RESTRICTED WET-ON-WET, GRADUAL LAYERING, GRADUATED COLOUR MIXES and so much more besides.

THIS WILL BE EN EYE OPENER – AN OBJECT LESSON IN how suggestive strokes and ‘blobs’ of colour seen in close-up, appear detailed when viewed at normal viewing distance. YOU CANNOT POSSIBLY BECOME FIDDLY when using a big brush as THIS LESSON ALONE DEMONSTRATES – as you will discover when you watch how Paul manipulates his large brush into the tiniest of nooks and crannies, or adds a fine line of light across the rim of the glass.

MAGIC MOMENTS ABOUND THROUGHOUT this lesson, AS ALWAYS FILMED IN REAL-TIME, as Paul gradually works through from the first suggestive reflected lights and reflections.
