Using a small shaving mirror to occasionally inspect your work-in-progress will act like a fresh pair of eyes; mistakes and irregularities will often suddenly come into focus: perhaps the starboard wingtip wider than the port and you just hadn’t noticed. You may have already decided that there’s something wrong with your painting or drawing, but just cannot put your finger on it… well this old trick can help.
Failing this, looking at the picture upside down for a little while can also reveal the problem and may also be a good thing to do in any case when painting from photographic references, since you’re looking at objects from a completely unfamiliar perspective.
