A tip to painters: ‘Mirror, mirror, on the wall’ is actually a very useful tool for painters. Face away from your canvas, hold up a mirror and take a look at your painting. When you look backwards the brain sees the painting differently. You will see composition and color errors you wouldn’t see looking straight on.
