There are several “tricks” for getting past what our brain is telling us. Chief among these is SQUINTING! But another way to practice is painting upside down. Unfortunately the only practical way to do this is from a photo."


  1. Beautiful job on this! Gorgeous vibrant color!

  2. Spectacular! I love the challenge itself in testing your mind's eye... a hard concept to teach. And of course you always take the challenge up a notch by adding two reflective images!! Scrumptious!
