In this workshop, we will create textured, complex watermedia backgrounds and then work on turning them into harmonious, successfully finished paintings. The transformation will occur by applying design, value, and negative painting techniques to these uniquely creative backgrounds. Our materials will be gesso and either watercolor or liquid acrylics (your choice). The process will produce uniquely interesting and creative paintings. Subject is up to you – the methods work well with both representative and abstract imagery. The pace will be fast and dynamic, and you will have fun! You will leave with at least eight painting starts, and one or two completed paintings. Expect to learn about creative new mixed-media methods of painting and to strengthen your compositional skills.


PAM HAUNSCHILD is a watermedia artist who devotes her time to capturing the beauty of nature in the American West. She is a retired college professor who now lives in Ashland, Oregon, and paints full time. She has been artist-in-residence at three national parks and continues to be inspired by her time there. Her work is in galleries in Ashland, Medford, and Bandon, Oregon, and is held by many individual and corporate collectors, including the National Park Service.

Pam has received awards for her work from the Northwest Watercolor Association. She designed and painted a poster and playbill cover image for the Britt Festival in Jacksonville, Oregon, and a mural at Southern Oregon University. She has taught many watermedia workshops in Oregon and Northern California and enjoys helping all students discover new methods of painting while using (or developing) their own unique artistic style.
