~ Sample Workshops   ~


Day-One • Primer for Field Sketching Birds
Learn several methods to sketch birds, this means any bird.  Get an understanding of basic bird anatomy, learn about feather patterns/directions and practice sketching eyes, beaks, legs and feet.  Weather and time permitting, we’ll head outside for practice.   
Bird images provided.

Day-Two • Herons, Egrets & Ibis…. Oh my!
Use techniques learned from day one along with learning specific pointers for sketching and painting wading birds.  We will begin the day practicing techniques.  After a lunch break, we’ll paint, step by step, a scenic that features wading birds.  Bring photos of marsh scenes and wading birds or on a tablet or hard copies.  We will make up our own landscape and use images of several birds to incorporate them into the scene.

This is a fun, fast-paced workshop.  I’m looking forward to sharing my field sketching experience with you and seeing your wonderful results!  Yay!  We get to sketch and paint for two days : )

GREEN PLAY: Mixing and Painting with Greens

Learn to mix a variety of greens to enhance your watercolor landscape and foliage paintings. Explore brush and negative painting techniques to create different effects.  This is a 'techniques' workshop - bring lots of photos for inspiration.  If time & weather allow, we will journey outside to put techniques learned into practice with a bit of plein air painting. 

Pam will have tube pigments and watercolor pencils on hand to supplement the colors in your current palette or watercolor pencils.
