First of all I really enjoyed the layout of this course, the design was gorgeous! I also found the videos extremely helpful as complements to the written parts. And they where not just for explaining, it was a pleasure to look at them. Apart from that, I now finally know how to make those cells, I have tried for ages without getting the result I’ve been wanting!

I have been doing fluid paintings for quite some time, after taking this course Emma’s techniques are my new favorites. Especially all the tips and tricks and secrets that was put into the section about details, how to do the cells, lines, dots and sponge work. Really looking forward to try all of this.  

- Andrew

Thank you so much Emma for taking the time to make this. I’ve been struggling with my fluid art for way too long but now I feel confident and ready to really turn my art into finished paintings. I’m putting all self-doubt behind me and just feel so inspired! Thank you again for making this course.
