I have been experimenting a lot with the illusion of textures such as wood, etc. This is an experiment with the look of marble. It is interesting what can be achieved using the knife tool.

Rowena, I used the knife and the roller. Rolled out at least three thick layers of colors, ones that compliment. I used the cut and paste to do the layers. I also used the blend mode just experimenting with the different options. In the end I used Photoshop to do a little tweaking.

Gorgeous!!! You are becoming a master at rendering surface textures. I love what you did with the shadows and arrangement as well. It's like two pieces of ceramic sculpture sitting on top a painting with the same pattern of art acting as a placemat. Now that might just be a niche in the gallery art world. Something you invented. I wonder if the top pieces could be made of papier maché and then covered with a print of the same art and then some high gloss acrylic. I am just saying... it looks very cool that way.
