Hi guys, here’s a quick one – a wee social media gimmick I commandeered recently:

I've been trying to find out new ways to show off my paintings and here's a trick I shamelessly stole from the @mhoilpaints – but I promise, it's not all just smoke and mirrors! Well, actually, that's exactly what it is… But… y'know. 😅 You can see my process and a really straightforward how-to on my stories. Stay creative y'all. 💚 ———————- #art #painting #myart #creative #artvideo #videoideas #photoideas #sky #clouds #instaartist #instaart #artoftheday #mystudiotoday #visualart #taidetta #kuvataide #finnishartist #painter #portraiture #portrait #inspiration #arty #creativephotography #makersgonnamake
It’s not all just smoke and mirrors you know!
Actually, that’s exactly what it is.
Literally, all you need is a mirror….
…and a camera, I suppose.
Works for video or photos, but you may want to wait for pleasant weather. Between this still and my video, the sun was up and my wee insta clip wasn’t quite as nice as the photo, but here we are. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I have been on a lookout for new ways to present my work and this trick looked really nice. Well, I’d say that, wouldn’t I, but what do you think?
I got a few blogs lined up for you in a bit, an announcement and a bit of new work, but that’s going to need to wait until I’m done celebrating my 30th birthday.
Till then, keep calm and create!
