Watermedia Painting on Claybord Workshop with Pamela Haunschild

Using a mixture of highly pigmented watercolors and acrylic inks, we will create three 11×14 paintings: a night sky painting like the image in the pdf below and two natural materials paintings like those on my website: www.pamhaunschild.com.
