We look forward to your company in our latest online course, ‘[Series 3] Learn to Enjoy Painting in Oils with Paul Taggart’, and as always, send you best wishes for your painting, from Eileen and Paul - now available from #artworkshopwithpaul on #vimeo -http://vimeo.com/ondemand/paintinginoilsseries3
Welcome to one of the series in which Paul 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.
Please read the VOD page description, so that you understand fully how this series works; because there are benefits to participating now; such as the opportunity to post problems which Artist & Author Paul Taggart can help to resolve.
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.”
“Getting used to handling oil paint in this form is really essential for you to get the full benefit of what oil painting can actually give to you.”
This is an exciting technique - get to grips with it through this build-up course and you will find yourself on a rich and stimulating journey.
Use the two, free-to-view, hour-long, Basics and Exercise Topical Technique tutorials as your introduction to working with Impasto.
These can be viewed here in Vimeo, as Bonus Features, until the main composition of this series reaches its natural conclusion.
From Lesson 1 onwards, this series will build as we film each lesson in real-time on a regular basis; 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/phot
Value-for-money is our philosophy, which is why we keep our prices as low as possible; so that you can either rent each lesson, or buy it to own it, for working along whenever you want.
We look forward to your company and as always, send you best wishes for your painting, from Eileen and Paul.
