Although this box-set of Line & Wash demonstrations shows Artist & Author Paul Taggart using watercolours; the Brush Line & Wash technique and method can be exploited and adapted for use with acrylics, inks and pastels.

Welcome to ‘Out and About with Paul’ where you join Artist & Author Paul Taggart at his easel painting on-the-spot during various events.
“Working with Line & Wash need not be about precise linework, nor need it be about detailed linework. In this box-set Paul shows how it can be about working in a manner that allows you to be dynamic, free-flowing and suggestive.
Of course there is a place for precise and detailed linework – Paul is not saying there isn’t; for as with everything in creating artworks, it is a matter of individual style and approach.
However, in this box-set, Paul sets out to demonstrate a variety of approaches across a number of different subjects; using various tools for his linework as introduced in the Painting Equipment Focus video.
In the four ‘Out and About with Paul’ tutorials, you are guided from the simplest of studies, executed with the lightest of touches, in which sunlight and reflections are the essence of the scene.
Then on to another, where changing light conditions affect two views, captured at different times of the day – two structural studies, one a boat, the other a building.
Thirdly, a two-part subject, in which a troupe of eight dancers performing for a brief fifteen minutes in an event, form a tableau of moving figures within a montage painting.
Not only an object lesson in how to capture multiple full-figure portraits; but also an invaluable lesson in ‘painting’ white.
Finally, a strong and bold subject, requiring a strong and bold approach completes this set; a set in which Paul works with different brushes and coloured inks for the linework and exploits several watercolour techniques for the ‘washes’ of colour.
Filmed in real-time, with close up shots so that you can see Paul’s brush-strokes, colour mixes and more, you not only get to peek over Paul’s shoulder as he works; you will also pick up a host of hints and tips from his detailed running commentary.
Value-for-money is our philosophy and this box-set is available to rent or buy at a fraction of the cost that you would pay for a similar overall length DVD.
Best wishes for your painting, from Eileen and Paul
Each of the four completed montage paintings completed from these events was donated by Paul Taggart and Eileen Tunnell to RNLI Scotland for fund-raising purposes, as part of their on-going fund-raising project ……
‘AWASH WITH THE RNLI’ – by Paul Taggart
These on-the-spot paintings are elements in Paul Taggart and Eileen Tunnell’s wide-ranging Fund-Raising Project in aid of RNLI Scotland – http://www.rnli.org.uk
The open-ended project is centred on a series of Master Oil Paintings by Paul Taggart, to be produced over many years – each painting will be published by Paul Taggart as a Fund-Raising Limited Edition Print.
SUCH AS THIS ‘Masterworks in Oils with Paul Taggart [Series 1’ – Reflecting on Longhope Sound – http://vimeo.com/ondemand/artworkshopwithpaulmaste
The subject for each of these paintings being chosen for its history and iconic representation of an area closely associated with selected RNLI Lifeboat Stations around the shores of Scotland.
Paul Taggart and Eileen Tunnell would like to thank Longhope Lifeboat Station, Oban Lifeboat Station and Invergordon Lifeboat Station for their support of this fund-raising project.
