About This Class



In this class, I will show you how to create and watercolor some of your favorite flowers. All projects are step by step and are suited for beginning and intermediate students.

I have included some preliminary 'drawing warm ups' and flower design tips to make drawing flowers a simple and more enjoyable activity. 

I have also included a simple system for transferring your finished drawing to the 140 lb. watercolor paper. This method has been used for generations of Illustrators, graphic artists, and fine artists.

You will learn how to use watercoloring masking fluid in our 'Mystic Rose' project. By the way, you can still do this project without using masking fluid so do join in even if you do not have any.

I will provide you 4  step by step projects. Each  project will outline a simple and effective method that you can use to draw and complete your watercoloring with confidence and assurance every time.


How To Use This Watercoloring Class To Your Best Advantage

Watch and Draw along with Ron as he explains the design elements that flowers use.

Draw and do some simple watercoloring with our first project.

Draw and learn some new watercoloring techniques with each project.  

Discover why Watercoloring is a simple and effective method of painting. It is as easy as coloring with felts. pens,or colored pencils.


Bonus at the end of the last video! 

 I am inviting you to come Sketching with me and draw and paint on location. This is where you stop the film and draw what you see and I draw what I see. Together we will discover how easy and enjoyable this nature experience can be.

These films are already edited and ready to get busy with Begin Creative Flower Watercoloring and I'll get ready to go sketching flowers with you after class in our next video...Begin Creative Outdoor Watercoloring

Ron Mulvey✏️

Artist / Art Teacher

My name is Ron Mulvey. I've been working as a full-time artist since 1980. I have had the pleasure of teaching art since 1983 and have taught thousands of classes on drawing and painting. I would consider it a privilege to assist you in achieving  your artistic goals.  

I have taught the basic and advanced mechanics and principles which give us the skill and confidence to express creatively, for the past 30 years. Sharing them is my passion!

One of my very favorite projects was an art book for children called the Artabet. It teaches children how to draw using 6 universal lines (similar to how vowels are the building blocks of Languages). is now in 8 countries and is used by over 800  schools worldwide as their basic art curriculum.

I live and work at home with my first love Sara, who is the other half of our Art and Music School, on a pristine acreage by the Little Slocan River in British Columbia, Canada.

Sara and I love it when the kids come home and they bring their kids with them. The Skillshare Cooking Classes really helps us when there's 15 for dinner.
