Painting Trick from Tim’s Vermeer

The move Tim’s Vermeer shows how Tim Jenison duplicated Vermeer’s painting style using a mirror to monitor parts of the picture. By placing a small, fixed mirror above the canvas at a 45-degree angle, he is able to view parts of the original image and the canvas simultaneously, and obtain a precise color match

Jon Gianelli shows how your students can duplicate that process using a mirror from a dollar store makeup compact, a dowel from home depot, and some books and painters tape to hold it all into place.
