    I am so excited to see this lesson published! Contact me if you have any questions, or comments regarding this resource. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. If you do follow this lesson and create a shell, please do share! I would be happy to offer advice, further instruction if you need.

    Fantastic lesson. I can also confirm from experience that Emma’s private lessons are super helpful and illuminating. They personally aided me in greatly improving my artistic skills – especially with regards to portraiture.

    What a great lesson! I will be using this with my art and design students as a great way of using colour… drawing what you feel and doing rubbings of the textures are great ideas for learning about your subject.

    I am a complete beginner. Having just read your lesson I am so excited and inspired by your beautiful painting that I intend to make this my next project. I hope I do you justice. Thank you for taking the time to share this.

    What a super lesson! I images are so cool.
    I know from experience what a great teacher you are. Even I have managed to produce some drawings and I must say how incredibly relaxing the whole process is , even if I don’t win the Turner prize (this year) !!!!!!
    I adore the shell, would love to see some more!

    your lesson is clear and so creative! Very helpful. I will definitely try to paint a shell following your technique.

      Thanks Barbara! I think you should try this and let me know how you get on. I saw some of your work over the last year, and you are getting pretty good! I am happy to help you along the way. It would be great to see your painting, and show it here, if you don’t mind displaying your efforts!

    Great lesson. I really love the idea of the rubbing- what a great and effective technique and study for a trompe l’oeil painting!

      Cool!
      I would love to take a class with you. Hopefully I could learn to draw too, can I take one of my kids along?
      Great website, love the colour samples.
