About This Class


Reflections are a definite 'must' for all the visual art forms. They bring shine and depth to your artwork and create a real 'pull' to the viewer.

I have made this demo easy to follow so that you get the 'Trick' right away.

Painting Reflections in watercolor or any medium involves some guidelines that will make parts of your paper appear shiny and wet even though they are just dry paper. This is the "Trick". 

Once you learn it for water you will start to look for "Reflections" everywhere. Your painting life will change forever!

Wonderful, easy to follow class, love the music too =) I really like how Ron explain things, like that shadows are really faint at the end, or how to add contrasts. Beautiful class!

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.
