Mirror Self Portrait

It’s always fascinating to see an artist take their work to the next level by expanding boundaries and pushing themselves to achieve more like the cosplay make-up artist doing insanely life-like work.

Scottish artist Ewan McClure decided that painting a photo of himself was much too easy so he added a degree of difficulty — he painted a self-portrait standing behind a canvas and using his reflection in a two-way mirror.

His mirror technique took around 3 hours of trial-and-error for what he calls a “loose but recognizable result.”

Check out a time-lapse video of his work.
