Another excellent class Anna. Thank you for covering a range of patterns and effects. It’s been many years since I did oil colour marbling, and I’m keen to give it another go.

I'm relatively new to art so getting to watch Anna at work and try these techniques on my own was really wonderful! Her instruction throughout the course gives you confidence and the different styles are amazing to see come to life. Thanks for a great class!
