Here's an Art Attack to help you paint reflections in your picture!

You will need:
  • A3 sized card
  • Pencil
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Ruler
  • Light blue pen or pencil
Carefully fold an A3-size piece of card in half.
On the left hand side of the card, draw a simple cartoon-like figure lightly in pencil.
Use a generous amount of paint, and paint one or two parts of the picture at a time.
Carefully close the card before the paint dries.
When you open it again, the excess paint will have printed onto the right hand side of the picture, leaving a mirror image.
Keep painting and repeat the technique after each one or two colours.
As you build up the picture, it starts to look like a reflected image.
Add on final detail - in this case it's buttons and stripes on a scarf.
And when the last of the paint has dried, add on final feature detail using a fine permanent black pen.
When you draw on the side of the reflection, make the pen work lighter.
Finally with a light blue pen or pencil, add some lightly drawn shine lines onto the reflected part of the picture, to add to the reflected effect...
...then use a ruler draw the frame of a mirror around the printed image.

And that's it!
Here are some other ideas - a cat looking into a mirror...
...a poser...
...or a mum, putting her make-up on!

Try it yourself!
