Lesson 19 – ‘Learn To Enjoy Painting’ with Paul Taggart

Lesson 10 is where this build-up acrylic painting tutorials starts, so just scroll through Playlist Season 2 and catch up with this stunning Indian waterscape inspired by Indian photographer Nishith Gupta. ........................... Artist and Author Paul Taggart uses Lesson 19 to re-evaluate the middleground rocks and figures and develop the reflections in the water. ............................ Using a traditional painting technique of layering through from dark to light, you can now see how important the underlying layers are in working gradually through to the highlight areas. ........................... Watch as Paul exploits glazes to make the middle section rocks more harmonious with their surroundings. ........................... See the foreground pool of water brought to life through the development of reflections and judiciously placed brushstrokes around rock bases. ............................ Successfully painting figures in silhouette is not merely a matter of painting them in a solid dark colour – it is about producing a formed structure on which the darks are built – once again this is a ‘how to achieve successful silhouettes’ tutorial in its own right. ........................... Finally, we are shown how intuitive additional ‘drawing’ using a flexible Rigger brush helps to strengthen the structure of trees and grasses.. ............................ Packed full of handy hints and tips – explained in detail through Paul’s running commentary, you will learn much from this lesson alone. ............................ Follow Paul's detailed demonstration and you will appreciate how Paul's enthusiasm for his craft comes through as he delights in sharing his knowledge - borne from the experience of a professional artist of some forty odd years standing. ............................ Nishith’s work was brought to Paul's attention through a painting friend and he has kindly granted permission to us to use his photographs as references for this painting.
