About This Class

In this class you will learn how to paint loose florals in Watercolor and ink. You can use this for so many things like weddingstationary, painting your favourite bouquets, graphics for webdesign and so much more. 

We will start the class with a bit of sketchbookpractice where we’ll paint Tulips, Muscari and the ever feared Peony. But no need to shake! I teach in a flowing style and make painting florals fun and... well... loose... you know like loose florals should be. The sketching is to familiarize us with the flowers and to make it easy to use them later on.

After some sketching we'll mix the flowers in a beautiful bouquet with tips and tricks on composing and balancing the elements.  


For this class I've used

  • Canson watercolor paper 300g
  • Watercolor sketchbook from Moleskin
  • Tropicals pan set from Prima Marketing
  • 2 round brushes in size 3 and 5
  • Ink fineliners from Staedtler in 0,05; 0,1 and 0,2

Great class, Camilla! The lessons were easy to follow, but also very informative. Building up to the final bouquet by practicing the individual flowers helped me overcome my fear of loose florals and bouquet composition! I will certainly take more of your classes in the future.

Teaching Whimsical watercolors

My name is Camilla and I’m a danish watercolourist. Mostly I paint whimiscal flowers which I share on Instagram as @camilla_damsbo_art. Here on Skillshare I love to share my knowledge in fun and easy classes on watercolor and ink and I can't wait to see you in class.

I would deffinitly say that watercolour is the most magical kind of paint, and all you can do is just know a little technique, loosen up your brush and trust the process.
