How to Paint 'Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer' from Paul Taggart's Elphen Chronicles

Greetings from our Steading studio - from where we bring you our latest releases of online video painting tutorials, including something quite new and, we hope, magical, for everyone to try. These you will find by clicking on this link, which will take you over to the On Demand section (of our official Paul Taggart account on Vimeo).

    The Elphen Tutorials, our latest addition to the ever-growing catalogue of Paul Taggart’s Elphen Chronicles videos (FREE-TO-STREAM). When we released my first Elphen Chronicles back in the nineties, one of the watercolour paintings in that book was the subject of much interest – a full length portrait of the three Elphen Warriors, Serpentspear, Thunderaxe and Bloodsword – for which I was asked time and again, how had I achieved the transparent, ethereal wings.

 Have you seen our other FREE-TO-VIEW and FREE-TO-STREAM Elphen Chronicles box-sets, plus individual videos featuring Masterworks oil paintings reveals, watch-along as I paint videos, behind-the-scenes films, trailers etc.? Not yet? Well .... we’ve just added another three Reveal videos, in which I share an insight into each of my three Masterworks oil paintings ‘Starway to Shimmistra’, ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’ and ‘Webstrand’s Gathering Swarm’ along with a walk-around plus a stage-by-stage reveal, all accompanied by some of the wonderful soundscape composed by our Music Director, Liza Mulholland. We’ve also converted our box-set to FREE-TO-STREAM for the filming of me working at my easel on ‘Starway to Shimmistra’ – if you’re interested in peeking over my shoulder as I work-along, this is a perfect chill-out series.
        So kick off your shoes, sit back and relax in a comfortable chair, pour a glass/cup of something cheerful, hit the play button and catch up with all those who continue to ‘elphenate’ along with us, bringing the Elphen to life through their individual artistic skills – which, as they know, we hugely appreciate. How fortunate we are to have such talent collaborating and working with us on Elphen Chronicles!

Don’t forget about our first Start-Art box-set (as written about in our previous newsletter) and of course we are still accepting requests for individual unique codes to download the FREE-FOR-YOU box-set, which continues towards the natural conclusion for each of the four workshops in Watercolours, Oils, Pastels and Acrylics - Episode 20 has been uploaded – that’s a total of $80 worth of downloadable tutorials already out there, so for anyone that hasn’t redeemed their code, we suggest you do so soon, because we will be shutting down the opportunity to request a code for downloads in the not too distant future.
        We are filming more FREE-TO-STREAM online videos to share with you in the coming months, so we’ll keep in touch with you by our occasional e-newsletter, if you have registered on our website to receive communication from us.
        Meanwhile and as ever, this comes with best wishes from Eileen and Paul – please ....... stay safe and keep well.
